The Electric Vehicle You Can Build

Adult Supervision Required

Kids, be sure to have full adult supervision before trying to build this at home.

Build A Car of the Future

Have you ever considered buying an electric car?

Some people are considering hybrids and full electric cars for their next automobile, but the next phase is here: the Build-Your-Own Electric car.

It's true.

Japan will release this car in the spring of 2013, and it will be technically classified as a class-1 motorized bike.

Just whatever you do, please do not call this car a Prius. There is enough tension brooding in the air between these two distant cousins, yet they maintain that they aren't related in any way.

But will they catch on?

The Chevy Volt has been available for some time now, but most consumers are reluctant to pay around $40,000.00 USD just to save money on gas. The initial price tag is the biggest hurdle to new electric car technology.

Great Scott! We are in the Future!

If you don't live in Japan, and want to own a car of the future, then you might want to consider purchasing a DeLorean.

The DeLorean will forever be known as the car of the future, as it graced the silver screen in the Back to the Future movies.

The headquarters for the DeLorean Motor Company is in Humble, Texas and can be reached by phone at 1-800-USA-DMC1.

6 Door Prius


6-Door Prius Sighted in Canada!

Believe it or not, there is such a thing as a 6-door Prius, and it has been sighted on the road.

No, Bigfoot was not driving it.

It was built in Canada, and pictures documenting this custom build can be viewed here.

By the way, this 6-door Prius seats 10 people, and gets 50 m.p.g. Not too bad for a stretch car.
