What Do We Need for Cleaner Cars?

Today, a number of companies are planning or already producing high-performing vehicles that run on electricity and other alternative fuels. Now more than ever before, auto manufacturers are competing to answer the call for environmentally friendly alternatives to fossil fuels. Electric cars are, perhaps, the “ideal”, but most models to date have been hybrids that also rely on petroleum as part of their energy mix.

The BMW i8 is a gorgeous car, but a green one?

BMW i8 is a gorgeous car inside and out, but I can't find anything about it particularly efficient or green among hybrids, nor high performing among the competitive field of more efficient high performance EVs. It competes in a very competitive category with the Tesla Model S P85 EV on the high end and Nissan Leaf EV on the low end, both with increasingly efficient and advanced technology under their hoods that, ironically, has nothing to do with trusted internal combustion (gas) engines.

This, perhaps, explains a lot about why those cars are not getting their due respect vis-a-vis hybrids such as the BMW i8.
