Although it was introduced earlier last week at CES, Ford’s Focus Electric vehicle still turned heads left and right at the Detroit Auto Show. The company’s first production EV will have a higher mile-per-gallon equivalent than the Chevy Volt and can charge in half the time of the Nissan Leaf. Added bonus: the vehicle’s display panel rewards energy-efficient driving by bursting forth in blue butterflies.
Li-Ion’s svelte Inizio supercar boasts a sexy set of curves and a 145kW electric motor that leaves frumpier EVs in the dust. The red-hot ride rockets from 0-60 in just 3.4 seconds, and its 250 mile range means you can hit the road for hours without having to recharge. But the best part is that you may soon see this speed demon on the streets – Li-Ion just started taking pre-orders for the production vehicle at the Detroit Auto Show, so reserve yours today!
What do you get when you blend an exotic electric sports car with a rough-and-ready all-terrain vehicle? The unlikely combination has spawned the Venturi America concept car, a beast of an EV that can charge over unforgiving terrain without breaking a sweat. The vehicle’s muscular chassis conceals a 300 horsepower electric engine that can carry the souped-up electric buggy for up to 190 miles.
