Lotus Unveils Eco Car

Newest Eco Car Heads to 2008 British Motor Show

Cruising at 34 mpg may not seem like the best gas mileage you can get these days, but then again, you probably aren't driving a Lotus. The high-end sports car manufacturer is unleashing its newest concept at the 2008 British Motor Show, satisfying the roadster and the eco geek in all of us with the Eco Elise.

Based on the super-swank Elise line, this baby goes from zero to 60 in 5.8 seconds and is totally green, inside and out. Interior materials include hemp, eco-wool, and sisal, and the exterior paint is water-based to not only use less energy (thanks to the paint's low-cure temperature) but cut emissions as well.

Although it's not stocked with an electric motor like the hot as fire Tesla (you know, the kind George has on reserve), I'll give Lotus some credit. At least they realize they don't have to sacrifice style to protect our environment. What else could you ask for in a sweet ride like this? Well, there's GPS, an iPod dock, mood lighting, onStar, Bluetooth compatibility. . . you get the idea.
