Alternative to Electric, Environmentally Friendly Vehicles…?

If you are familiar with the show: Top Gear, you know that the boys, Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond are in charge of completing a mission in every episode. In a recent episode they were challenged to create their own answer to the Chevy Volt. And boy, did they.

With an elegant plywood and sheet-metal exterior and an interior packed with lawn-chairs, semi-detached radio and rotatable windshield the Hammerhead Eagle i-Thrust gives the Volt has some fierce competition.

The thing almost runs 30mph, has absurdly oversensitive steering and whoever drives it seems to appreciate the value of safety and life to a whole new level after getting out. We’ll have to wait and see how the Volt does when it comes out. But if it’s even half as good as the i-Thrust, we can all be looking forward to something great.

Here is a review of the i-Thrust as well as a race with some of its competition.
