The future of energy efficient mobility

Sign in to queue

Description

Energy efficient personal mobility is something that we all should be concerned with. We all need to get around and we all need to do our part to save the environment. That's why "Going Green" was such a huge theme at this year's Wired Magazine's NextFest. The Toyota booth took up nearly 1/4 of the show floor as they showed off multiple vehicles and even let attendees ride the I-Real. So, exactly how efficient are these futuristic rides? Watch this clip to find out and then check out this clip for more info on how you can help!

    Looks great fun, more car manufactures should indeed be looking at reducing our oil consumption, if they can get these batteries to last long for MPG like current cars I think it is the way to go, especially since in the UK there trying to redevelop everything into nuclear power it will be very green Big Smile apart from the nuclear waste though.

    Thanks Bootstrap Smiley - and I was serious about switching to a Hybrid. Especially since WA offered a ZERO sales tax incentive if you buy one in '09. Hope all states do!

    I'd love a full electric for my daily driver.  I just bought a Testarossa...8 mpg in the city...I know it's awful.  But I only use it for special occasions and buy carbon credits to offset all the emissions - that totally makes it okay, right?  Right?  Smiley
