I recently discovered a company called Tesla Motors. They have created a tesla coil engine that provides amazing performance from an electric engine. 0-60 mph in 4 seconds. 270 miles on a full charge. And all of this for about 1 cent per mile at current electric rates.
This technology is exciting because you can produce electricity from a number of sources, you could utilize solar, wind, hydrothermal, nuclear or coal. So this technology can adapt to changing fule needs over time. No more dependency on the middle east or any other nation for our fuel!
80% of our oil use in the United States is for Transportation. So finding an alternative to oil for our automobile needs is essential for the United States to become oil independent. Imagine a future where problems in the middle east wouldn’t affect how much we must pay to get to work or to school. Tesla Motors has the car that can get us there, but what is more exciting is that this is just the first step. Tesla Motors will be designing cheaper models in the future, so more of the public will be able to get their hands on this technology. So wether you are wanting to save the environment or be free from the burdens of oil use, this technology has tremendous promise.
I encourage you to check out Tesla Motors website at teslamotors.com, and learn more about their electric car.
