The video above is of an Electrathon racer on display at AltWheels Boston 2007. Electrathon racers travel 50 miles in an hour using a kilowatt/hour of electricity: That's the equivalent of 1,500 MPG at highway speeds on the power of a hair dryer. The next stop for that Electrathon racer is the Red Bull Soapbox Race, a sort of frat party on wheels.

Below the fold are two more videos I shot at AltWheels. One shows the Microfurthur, a series hybrid made from an old farm work vehicle. The other is about the eMotive, a university project that hopes to bring electric cars to the third world.
