68 Electric Cars to Combat Rising Gas Prices

From Self-Charging Cars to Hybrid Hummers

— October 28, 2009 — Autos
If my car wasn’t already benched, I would be just as concerned about the rising gas prices as everyone else. At this point, however, my main concerns involved the burnt-out headlight and non-existent break-pads. I should just get a new car.

Actually, perhaps that’s what we all need to do. Forget rising gas prices, they would be a thing of the past if you indulge in an electric car instead of a gas-guzzler. This cluster is filled with electric beasts, so take your pick.
