http://MPGomatic.com takes a ride in a 2012 Mitsubishi i-MiEV electric car. We check out a bunch of huge solar array installations and look for public charging stations. The solar energy business is booming in New Jersey, but we lag far behind when it comes to electric vehicle charging stations.
Why are electric cars important? This keynote from James Woolsey, former director of the CIA will help to shed light ...
Aptera 2e Electric Car @ Princeton
http://MPGomatic.com gets a ride in a production-intent Aptera 2e
two-passenger electric vehicle. This is the very same Aptera 2e that took
part in the Automotive X-Prize competition.
The three-wheeled Aptera 2e is remarkably aerodynamic and lightweight.
(Production weight is expected to be in the 1800 lb. range.) It uses A123
batteries and a Remy electric motor.
This video was shot at an event in Princeton, NJ hosted by NRG Energy, an
investor in Aptera.

2013 Hyundai Veloster Turbo Review : MPGomatic
MPGomatic.com puts a six-speed manual 2013 Hyundai Veloster turbo to a grueling 500+ mile test drive. We
switched things up a bit with this review, and have included a demo of the
Blue Max and Eco-Coach features along with our usual 0-60 MPH and fuel
economy testing. It's in HD, as well. :) Big screen and Big MPGs, woo hoo!
The Hyundai Veloster turbo is equipped
with a turbocharged 16-valve Dual-CVVT
1.6-liter inline four-cylinder engine producing 201 horsepower and 195 pound
feet of torque. The intercooled and gasoline direct-injected (GDI) four
banger cranks out more than sixty HP and seventy pound feet of torque over
the naturally-aspirated 2012 Veloster we tested earlier this year.
A six-speed manual transmission is standard in the Veloster turbo, while a six-speed automatic is optional.

ONE DAY WITH THE MITSUBISHI I-MIEV
I drive this electric vehicle like a normal car, but I can't say it's a
it's faster than the most
conventional cars of this size...
The i-MiEV has got a 16kWh Li-Ion battery with a nominal voltage of 330V, a
usual 230V charge needed about firstname.lastname@example.orgW!
A quick charge up to 80% via CHAdeMO (400VDC@50kW/CAN bus) is trendy , but
I wouldn't recommend it for the battery!

Car Throttle: Mitsubishi i-MiEV Electric Vehicle Review
We drive our first electric vehicle, the Mitsubishi i-MiEV. Will it last
and have enough juice to get us to Kingston-upon-Thames? Is it practical in
the real world and how much money will you save? Here are all the
Renault Twizy, a funny, but useful electric car.
A quick introduction to the Twizy, a electric car by Renault. It looks
funny, but it is a nice design in easiness in use and driving.
Top speed 85 km/h
Range 80 km (if riding properly)
VERY tight turns (me happy)
VERY small to park (me happy)

Test driving the Mia Electric car in Luxembourg!
Check out the full review at this link: http://tinyurl.com/wort-mia-test
There aren't that many electric cars on the market, although hybrid
vehicles are growing in popularity, and even fewer that are truly 100%
electric. Even less are totally designed from scratch, not based on any
other car, and only one, a new company with this exact mission, has just
launched in Luxembourg -- The Mia Electric.
