It’s Electric!

Over the past decade we’ve seen a lot of technological improvements, especially in cars. I don’t know about you, but the heated seats and GPS in my ride are an awesome addition. However with rising gas prices, there’s another improvement just on the horizon—the electric car.

Major car companies like Ford and Nissan are developing their own models, and energy companies like GE are developing electric “fueling” stations for both public places and households.

Some initiatives like Project Get Ready are promoting the use of and provide information about electric vehicles. Sponsored by the Rocky Mountain Institute, Project Get Ready is also seeking to create a network of cities that will support the electric car enterprise.

Just like other new models, these cars come fully equipped with awesome features. The Chevy Volt boasts a brand new version of a Bose Soundsystem, and has two screens that can tell you battery power and distance to the next fueling station. Cool right?

So even if you’re not really in the market for a new car this year, definitely start looking out for these babies–I’ve got a feeling they may shock you (hehe).
