Eco cars

Chevy Volt

So I'm sure everyone had heard about or has discussed the new eco cars, (Prius followers.)  But I suppose I shouldn't say "Prius followers" as all these cars claim to use energy more efficiently then the Prius, (due to being plug-in hybrids, or electric, not just a hybrid engine.)  But right now when I do see one on the road I do take a second look because you don't see too many as they are quite pricey.  And not all the vehicles in this post are even available for purchase yet, so mainly I am talking about the Chevy Volt and Nissan Leaf.  I commend these companies for making these products available as we all know we have to find other solutions other then oil and eventually the prices will come down on these types of technologies.

Chevy Volt interior, great strides in unique materials for this niche product

Chevy Volt center stack is all white and has haptic feedback when you engage the

Chevy Volt door insert deco....not for your average Honda Accord customer....another cool element

Nissan Leaf, in front of a very nice home

Nissan Leaf interior....very light colors make the cabin feel spacious and bright

Fisker Karma....I don't think that is production body paint but if it is that is hot

Fisker Karma interior, for final production the customer will have their choice of numerous different interior color combos....that kind of choice in automotive is luxurious

Tesla Roadster 2.5 interior....very sports oriented, to me a totally different consumer then the Fisker Karma
