Updated on June 5, 2011

Year 2011

Year 2011 is going to be very good for those, who always dreamed to buy an electric car, electric vehicle or electro-mobile, whatever you call it. If you still don't know what this is you are probably just kidding. These cars are the ones, that we have seen in a movies about 15-20 years ago which at that time looked to be absolutely nonsense. Now there cars are now future cars, but cars of today.

In 2011 there is going to be a few big releases of so called electric cars, and i would like to give a short article about all these biggest debuts. 

Tesla Model S

Tesla Model S

This beauty queen is going to be delivered to customers on the end of 2011, but i have to start with the most beautiful so this is the one worth start. Tesla Model S is an electric car that may run 300 miles per charge witch is much as for this type of car. It gets to 60mph per 5.6 seconds, so is like a devil, for those who say that electric will never beat petrol. It also has 120mph top speed and a quick charge function, which charges it only in 45 minutes. And price is delicate it's about $57.000-58.000 for US residents.

If you are even bigger gasoline enthusiast, you should google for Tesla Roadster. That baby goes to 60mph per 3.7 seconds.

Fisker Karma

Fisker Karma

This one is a plug-in hybrid luxury sports sedan first revealed in 2008, but gets in production only in 2011. As a hybrid it has both - electric and gasoline engine and can drive 50 miles only on electricity, 100 miles in sport-hybrid mode and 300 miles on combined regime. What's sad about Karma is price. It's announced price is $88,000. 

Chevrolet Volt

Chevrolet Volt

The Chevrolet Volt is a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle being produced by theChevrolet division of General Motors and will be launched in November 2010 as a 2011 model. Using only electricity it can go for about 40 miles, but as it's mostly built to be used on combined regime it makes almost 340miles when using petrol and electricity. It's price should start at about $41.000 

Nissan Leaf

Nissan Leaf

This car is different from ones above, because it's not as sporty. It's because Nissan's vision about electric cars is a bit different. LEAF stands for Leading, Environmental friendly, Affordable, family car. This one is fully electric car as Tesla and can do a 100 miles per charge. It's announced price in US is almost $33.000.

      I feel that it is only a matter of time until most Americans are driving electric cars. Electricity does not have to be shipped around the world, like oil. No need for a huge pipeline either. You can make electricity wherever you have sunlight or wind.
