When you've got (the name), flaunt it. The video above is of the Volts Wagen, a homemade EV that should turn a few heads.The car isn't a new EV miracle - it's got basic converted stats (40 miles on a charge, 65 mph top speed) - but it's got plenty of style.

"My question is simple: Why aren't we all driving on electricity? Actually, I'll do you one better than that," the host says, and proceeds to explain his home solar set up. With it, he can drive his yellow bug in a totally green way.

I want this car, or one like it. Also, the host in the video makes a great ambassador for battery-powered electric cars.
