Bright Automotive to make 100 miles per gallon hybrid

If you thought no one would start a new car company in these difficult economic times, your were wrong. A company called Bright Automotive is to make a 100 mpg plug in hybrid. You will be able to drive it on the freeway too. This should cause our oil producing enemies great pain.

Rocky Mountain Institute Spins Off a Car Company: Bright Automotive January 15, 2009 at 1:48 PM

The Rocky Mountain Institute, the think tank that has played a central role in transforming green technology and energy efficiency from a fringe pursuit to a central pillar in industrial and national planning, has spun out a car company.

Bright Automotive wants to make plug-in hybrids. The cars will go about 30 miles on a charge and 400 miles or so in all with the help from the gas generator. Overall, the cars will get 100 miles an gallon.

The cars will be street and freeway legal. Excerpted from here.
