I’m on a non-official waiting list for a GM Volt:
The Chevy Volt concept was first unveiled by General Motors in January 2007. It is a sleek and sporty 4-passenger car than can drive for up to 40 miles on pure electricity, powered by a 160 hp electric motor. Beyond that distance, the car uses an on-board back-up gasoline generator which will keep the batteries charged for a total range of about 400 miles.
Sounds pretty sweet.
By the way, I’ve decided to install an electric motor on my boat. Apparently, I just need to find a really huge, variable speed electric motor and a bank of about 6 car batteries.
