This year’s SEMA show in Las Vegas was home to several electric vehicles, yet the eVaro seems to have garnered the most attention, boasting zero carbon emissions for 90 per cent of the time spent on the road and an impressive mpg of 275.

The three-wheeled plug-in hybrid (which boasts better turning performance than traditional vehicles) can go from 0 – 60 in five seconds and can cruise for 90 miles on battery power alone (it takes the eVaro three hours to fully charge). No word on whether the vehicle will ever see commercial production, but the Auto X Prize (US$10 million) is certainly a boost.
