28 Alternative Energy Autos

From Ring-Shaped Electric Cars to 3-Wheeled Sedans

— February 11, 2010 — Autos
It seems we are now on the cusp of fully integrating the electric car into our lives, and for this reason I present to you these 29 Alternative Energy Autos.

The number of companies producing hybrids is increasing all the time and many manufacturers are beginning to put out cars that require no fossil fuels at all.

It is not outlandish to say that in as little as 20 years, one in every three cars could be electric making this list of 29 Alternative Energy Autos a little more believable.
