New Exotic Eco-Friendly Cars

Email  Print Print  

BentleyWho said Tesla Motors had the lock on exotic eco-friendly cars? While The Tesla S Roadster is probably one of the most well known all electric vehicles, a lot of luxury car manufacturers are getting into the game and offering their own eco-friendly models. CNN Money took a peek at the prototypes from Ferrari, Lamborghini, Porsche, Bentley, Rolls-Royce and Aston Martin (who technically cheated, more on that in a second) at the Geneva Motor Show.

Ferrari has their 599 HY-KERS, Lamborghini has the Sesto Elemento, Porsche debuted the Panamera Hybrid four-door and showed off the 918 Spyder, while Bentley displayed a flex-fuel Continental GT coupe. You also had the Rolls-Royce 102EX, a plugin-in Phantom, as well as Aston Martin’s Cygnet. The one that looked out of place was Aston Martin’s Cygnet, because it’s just the Toyota/Scion iQ bathed in all the luxuries of Aston Martin. While I love the idea of subcompact tiny smart cars, I have trouble with driving such a small vehicle in the land of 80mph trucks and SUVs. Plus, if you’re thinking about starting a family… those don’t look car-seat friendly.

I’ll take one of each. 🙂

  1. I think that hybrid/electric vehicles are here to stay, and I’m glad! It’s been quite a while since the automotive industry did some innovative work!

    P.S. I used to live in Palm Beach and saw those exotic cars everywhere! It’s so much easier to be content with my Jeep now that we moved away. 🙂

    Give it a few years and these cars will start flowing down to the masses. I can’t wait.

    Hopefully the prices of some of the hybrids and electric vehicles will be lower by the next time I need a car. I think I’d like a Chevy Volt based on what I’ve read about it.

    i love the idea of the electric car, but i do wish they were more affordable. also, while they get away from fossil fuels, they are still coming off the electrical grid. we need to find a way to add to that grid more efficiently.
