The series on green/sustainable living continues today with a look at some upcoming electric vehicles that will be coming soon to a roadway – and in the case of one of the vehicles – bike path near you.

These are some innovative vehicles, and in this day and age, innovative vehicles is truly the order of the day.

To live in a sustainable way, gasoline-powered cars have to give way to cars powered by other means: electric, ethanol, biofuels, and other methods.

The video at the top of the page is of the THINK City Electric Car, from Norway.

The next video is an interview with Tesla Motors’ Vice President of Business Development Diarmuid O’Connell who discusses everything from geopolitics to the future of transportation.

Tesla Motors, named after inventor Nikola Tesla, is a Silicon Valley-based company that engages in the design, manufacture, and sale of electric vehicles and electric vehicle power train components. It is currently the only automaker building and selling highway-capable EVs in serial production (as opposed to prototype or evaluation fleet production) in North America or Europe.

And speaking of Tesla Motors, the next video is of their all-new family sedan electric vehicle, the Tesla Model S. The video is of the first test drive taken of the car, at its unveiling.

And finally, here is something a little different in the electric vehicle department: a folding electric bicycle. It’s a fun, unique and very cool vehicle, and on the simpler end of electrified transportation.
