To get us used to what to expect in the future, Volvo proudly presents its first ever electric car....this adorable little golf cart will cost you about $8000 if you want to have one for your backyard:
Now if every car manufacturer would follow suit and start producing not just cars that run on electricity, but on other alternative fuel as well, our economy's dependency on foreign oil will be eliminated in no time.
The BMW Group is about to become the first manufacturer of premium automobiles to deploy a fleet of nearly 500 all electric vehicles for private use in daily traffic. Powered by a 150 kW (204 hp) electric motor and fed by a high-performance rechargeable lithium-ion battery, the vehicle will be nearly silent and emissions free.
Even as clerics and politicians in the Arab world ring out denunciations of U.S. foreign policy and the encroachment of Western-style decadence, these gleaming emblems of American freedom are growing in popularity here, says Marwan Tarraf, who sells Harleys in Lebanon and helped organize the tour. Five years ago, he knew of only 25 serious Harley riders in Lebanon. Now, he says, there are about 180.
Harley clubs are popping up around the region. Talal says his chapter in Riyadh has about 300 members. They ride in one of the world's most religiously conservative countries wearing the black leather jackets, heavy boots and snarling insignia of biker gangs everywhere.
Talal sees no incongruity in having the green flag of Saudi Arabia, with its sword and elaborate Koranic script, right below the glistening Harley-Davidson badge on his black denim jacket, or in playing Arabic pop music as he rides his all-American bike.
In fact, he says, Saudi Arabia is the perfect place to ride. The wide roads are fantastic for motorcycles, smooth and well-maintained. Such highways are becoming more typical in the Middle East, especially in the car culture of the Persian Gulf. Dry, sunny days are also common in the region: Lebanon gets about 300 days a year of Southern California-like weather.

Smith has taken man's romance with the automobile to a whole new level, and he claims his attachments to his metal, leather-upholstered companions are far from platonic.
The 57-year-old Washington state native first had sex with a car at age 15, and says he has never been sexually attracted to people, female or male. And he feels no need to change.
"I'm not sick and I don't want to hurt anyone. Cars are just my preference," he told British newspaper the Telegraph.
His current flame is a Volkswagen Beetle that's he's named Vanilla, and considering a typical woman's reaction to Smith's spreading himself around, she's very low maintenance (not counting trips to the mechanic or pricey imported auto parts).
And there have been many others. A 1973 Opal GT named Cinnamon, a 1993 Ford Ranger Splash he called Ginger, and Victoria, a 1969 Beetle he bought from a family of Jehovah's Witnesses.
Smith explains, "I appreciate beauty and I go a little beyond appreciating the beauty of a car only to the point of what I feel is an expression of love," Smith said.
ROME: Italians are used to buying bogus Gucci bags or Rolex watches to look stylish but police found a new height of craftsmanship and cunning when they broke up a ring selling fake Ferrari cars for a fraction of the real price. Police accused 15 people of building the blood red sports cars and selling them to car fanatics on a budget, most of whom knew they were buying a counterfeit classic.
The world's cheapest car has no air conditioning, no airbags, no radio and a whole list of other things, but people are still excited about it, at least in some parts of the world. They call it "the people's car"....gee that sounds familiar.
For millions of people in the developing world, Tata Motor’s new $2,500 four-door subcompact — the world’s cheapest car — may yield a transportation revolution with as great an impact as Henry Ford’s Model T, which rolled off an assembly line one century ago.
The potential impact of Tata’s Nano has given environmentalists nightmares, with visions of the tiny cars clogging India’s already-choked roads and collectively spewing millions of tons of carbon dioxide into the air.
The Tata Nano most likely won't be available to consumers just yet, because it's missing several standard safety features.
