Today I watched an episode of Daily Planet which intrigued my environmental side; electric cars.
They run on a lithium ion battery which plugs in to charge. They have been in the making for the past ten to twenty years.
Chevy has a new one called Volt which has gas used only as needed as a secondary feature.
Ford and BMW have some too.
China is producing one called the BYD that is at the moment, only available to the Chinese higher-ups, but will become available to the general population and then North America.
The projected release for these vehicles is 2011.
