A Day in the Life of an Electric Car

( http://www.TFLcar.com ) In the very near future will we all be driving electric cars? That's a question that only 10 years ago seemed like a dream, but today with all electric cars like the 2012 Nissan Leaf, it doesn't seem so far fetched. Of course unlike, gasoline powered cars, electric cars can't be filled up at your local gas station in a few minutes. Once they run our of juice...you are well and truly stuck. This is called range anxiety and it can be all too real. We decide to find out just how real by spending a day in the life of the all new Nissan Leaf.

2013 Ford Escape hands-free Power Tailgate Technology Demo
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2013 Ford Escape is all new and with the new small Crossover comes a new Ford technology from the European Ford C-Max. The Escape's hands-free Power Tailgate allows owners to open the car's back hatch with a kick of the foot. Instead of having to reach down and push a button on a key fob or manually open the tailgate (which can be an issues with a handful of groceries) the Escapes owner just kicks their foot under the back bumper. In this technology demonstration from the 2012 Chicago Auto Show a Ford executive demo states how the new tech works.

( http://www.TFLcar.com ) What's the best green car that you can buy today? We at The Fast Lane Car are lucky to drive a different car every week so we've had the chance to drive many (if not most) of the best green cars on the market. Here are the Top 7 green cars that we've driven recently.





2012 Chevy Volt versus Nissan Leaf Mash-up Drag Race
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2012 plug-in Chevrolet Volt and the new all electric Nissan Leaf are not what most people would consider performance cars. In fact they are designed to get people from point A to point B using the least amount of energy and burning the least amount of oil. If you think about it...in some ways they are the ultimate economy cars but that doesn't mean they can't be fun to drive. To determine which of these two new revolutionary cars is the better performance machine we put them to the test the good old fashioned way: with an electric car drag race. So which one is faster? Watch the video to find out.





2013 Toyota RAV4 EV 0-60 MPH Technology Demonstration
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2013 all electric Toyota RAV4 EV may look like the 3rd generation RAV4 but don't be fooled...the all electric SUV/Crossover is all new. Under the hood is an electric engine that is capable of some very serious 0-60 MPH times for a big and heavy crossover vehicle as we found out in this video. The new all electric Toyota RAV4 EV is capable of 103 miles of range and is rated by the EPA as having a combined 76 MPGe. It is also one of the only all all electric Crossovers that you can buy. Of course you can only buy it in California and it will cost you almost $50K to go green. Check out this TFLcar tech demo video as we learn about the new all electric Toyota RAV4 EV and we test to see how fast it can go from 0-60 MPH.





2014 Tesla Model S P85+ takes on the Ike Gauntlet Review (Part 3)
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The Tesla Model S P85 is a revolutionary car that says goodbye to the internal combustion engine and hello to the electric motor. But how will this all electric car do when the road gets steep and the altitude gets to two miles above sea level. From Dillion, Colorado to the Eisenhower Tunnel U.S. I-70 climbs 8 miles to a maximum elevation of 11,158 feet or 3,401 meters. That's enough elevation and grade to test a small economy car like the 2014Ford Fiesta and the Chevy Sonic turbo, but how will the 2014 Tesla Model S P85+ perform on the same stretch of American Highway? In Part 3 of another accurate, informative and fun TFLcar mashup review Nathan, Emme, Andre and Roman take on the Ike Gauntlet in the new 2014 Ford Fiesta and Chevy Sonic turbo and the most powerful electric production car...the 2014 Tesla Model S P85+ to see how these small cars handle the steep grade and lack of air density in the Mountains of Colorado.
