Do the (electric, planet-saving) Tango
Your guess is as good as mine when it comes to predicting the UK launch date for this fabulous-looking electric car. However, if the growing UK appetite for electric scooters and cars is anything to go by, chances are it may be sooner rather than later. I certainly hope so, as ProDrive's 2-seater Tango not only looks superb - it's also very green, clocking up 80 miles on one charge and producing zero emissions (provided it's charged by green eleccie). It should be a cinch to park - it's only 39 inches wide - and it's unusually nippy for a electric motor, reportedly going from 0-60mph in 4 seconds and reaching a top speed of 150mph. George Clooney's already bagsied the first production model; Americans can preorder at Commuter Cars; everyone else can lust over the images here. [thanks, Jerry]

I love this car! Especially the Adidas version. Can you imagine how much it would cut down on emmisions if every commuter used an electric car? What we need are places that are like gas stations, but "electricity stations" where you could charge your battery in a snap! It seems as if we're finally catching up with the future!

Gotta love the evolution taking place with regard to cars...
The coolest alternative car I have come across is the Air Car (http://www.theaircar.com/).
Under £10k, seats 6, goes upto 160 kph, Works on compressed air, charges fast and is safe as other cars.
Just wrote article on it...can't wait to get one!
