Electric Amphibious Vehicle

According to CT&T, the MAV goes 40 mph on land and 95 mph on water. The water speed figure seems a bit implausible, however. Gizmag believes that something was lost in translation and the vehicle actually just goes 10 mph on water. That’s still nothing to sneeze at for a car, but it won’t lead to any NASCAR-type races at the local lake. Still, a spokesperson…

Automobiles, above all else, represent America s addiction to dirty oil. Plug-in electric vehicles (EVs), which require no gasoline and emit no pollution from their tailpipes, present a critical opportunity to slash pollution, reduce our dependence on oil, create American jobs, and improve national security.

The graphics for the Leaf’s digital gauge cluster and central infotainment display provide information in a clear and mostly useful manner, but they are starting to look old. (The little “trees” that sprout somewhat unpredictably in the cluster based on driving behavior look odd and aren’t particularly useful.) But we appreciated Nissan’s helpful display that…

Purchase rebates and tax credits have been a major factor in the growth of electric cars over the past few years.
