CES 2011: GM EN-V

Thursday, January 6th, 2011

This automotive gizmo puts the “Johnny Cab” from the movie “Total Recall” to shame.  General Motors released a prototype of their GM EN-V.  This is an automated, two person seated, GPS controlled vehicle.  It reaches speeds of up to 25 mph.  While not entirely fast, the benefits of such transportation are said to revolutionize urban transportation.  With built-in collision avoidance systems, it communicates with other cars and can predict accidents by adjusting speed or stopping completely.  The unit runs on two electric motors powered by lithium-ion phosphate batteries which can be charged via a plug in the wall.

Check the video to see it in action:

Tesla Roadster Sport at Abt

Tesla Roadster Sport at Abt

Have you seen the newest, eco-friendly attraction in our atrium? We are happy to partner with Tesla Motors to showcase a Roadster Sport in our store until this Saturday, July 31st. The Roadster is one of the first electric cars available for purchase today.  It can go from 0 to 60 MPH in 3.7 seconds, 245 miles per charge and has 0 tailpipe emissions!  What’s great is that it plugs into nearly any outlet and its expected battery life is 7 years, or 100,000 miles.  While this vehicle runs in the low six-figure price range, it does qualify for the $7,500 federal tax credit because it is an electric vehicle. If you want to take a look at this beauty, make sure you stop on by before the Roadster Sport drives off into the sunset.
