I'm not sure that this item has a proper place in my blog, but an electric car that recharges from mains and photovoltaic cells is pretty exciting. Shame the price is over $100k. Even at today's prices that's a lot of fuel, although also a lot of Carbon.
Paris Motor Show: Venturi AstroLab electro-solar hybrid - AutoblogGreen: "Venturi claims it is the first electro-solar hybrid vehicle. It can charge its batteries either from the sun via the flat upper surface covered with photo-voltaic cells or by plugging it into an outlet. Questionable aesthetics aside this is a technologically-interesting vehicle. The manufacturer claims that even the carbon dioxide emissions produced by the production process will be offset by other environmental actions, hence the label 'The CarbonNeutral Company'."
