Green Sports Cars

For a long time green technology been associated with austerity and a dour sense of kill-joy-ism! A new wave of funky green innovation is set to change all that and perhaps no green innovation is as sexy as the eco-friendly sports car. The eco-friendly car has been with us for some time in the shape of the Toyota Prius etc, but they had a slightly geeky reputation, despite celebrity endorsement. Now a number of car manufacturers are beginning to develop more glamorous sports cars and roadsters with green credentials.

The Tesla P1 Roadster
Manufactured in San Carlos, California, USA, the Tesla is an electric car. It can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 4 seconds, reaching speeds of around 125mph. An average charge takes 3.5 hours and that should give enough power to travel 220 miles.
The Tesla is taken for a spin by the Top Gear Team in the following video:

The Morgan Lifecar
Manufactured and designed in the UK by a consortium of UK companies and universities, the Morgan is a hydrogen powered car. Its only emission is some water vapour. It is capable of speeds of up to 90 mph, and can accelerate from 0 to 60 in 7 seconds. A full tank of hydrogen will take you 250 miles. The Morgan Lifecar is constructed using an imaginative combination of material including aluminium and wood!
