Volkswagon Electric E-Bugster

Can you imagine being a fly on the wall when Volkswagen finally took the covers off of its closely guarded E-Bugster electric concept vehicle? The curvaceous auto definitely lived up to the rumors that it takes after another kind of bug, the Beetle, although we thought it had a bit of Jetta or Golf mixed into it’s gene pool as well.

Ford Fusion Energi Plugin Hybrid

Living up to the title of world’s most efficient sedan is a tough job but Ford Fusion Energi Plugin Hybrid takes it all in stride. With its plug-in hybrid drivetrain capable of achieving the equivalent of 100, yes, 100, mpg, this blue beaut also touts nifty advancements like a system that parallel parks it automatically.
