Could This Electric Car Be the Answer to America's Fuel Problem?
SAN CARLOS, CA – Americans have a love affair with their automobiles – and that, of course, is what makes the record high gasoline prices even more difficult to swallow. This country defined the muscle car in the form of the Corvette, Mustang, Camaro and others.
But at $3 per gallon for gas, the idea of driving excitement is rapidly fading into a distant memory. It is perhaps the idea of driving excitement - or lack thereof - that has made many Americans hesitate in adopting fuel-efficient hybrid vehicles. And even some of the hybrids offered today are not completely living up to the promises in terms of efficiency.
But in today’s world, driving excitement may not be practical. Surely any new vehicle capable of zero to 60 in less than four seconds and a top speed of nearly 130 mph is wildly out of step with the realities of ever-increasing gas prices.
