44 Modes of Eco-Friendly Transportation

— September 2, 2008 — Autos
Every day, the mavericks of eco-friendly travel continue to produce more and more innovative ideas to shape how we travel in the future. Many of them center on alternatives to gas, and these concepts are not just limited to cars. From green luxury yachts to electric motorcycles and solar powered planes, nearly every mode of transportation has been revolutionized with regard to its emissions and overall impact on the environment.

Some of these trends are just concepts that will continue to be fine-tuned over the years. Others are already in production and can be purchased today. I’m all about eco-friendly supercars and performance automobiles, so it’ll be interesting to see how some of these concept cars do as they near production.
