Web Stuff Friday: Automotive Energy Innovation

In light of yesterday's post about energy, here are some interesting things that are happening:

Tesla Motors is now delivering 100% electric vehicles. It's a bit out of my price range, but I hope they can make the business work.

Mercedes is planning to sell blue efficiency cars that are more fuel efficient than their standard sedans. These, too are out of my price range, but when a real automotive manufacturer starts working on making alternative fuels scale, progress seems possible. This is the most exciting news about improving the environment and reducing our petroleum dependency that I have heard in a long time.

Solar race cars chase the sun
is about a cool race from Dallas to Calgary.

On a somewhat related note: maybe solar power will make some big leaps soon.
