With petrol hitting $1.5 litre, the time for electric cars is now. Hybrid cars continue to sell well, but many buyers are after a car which will really make a difference in the fuel bill.
The Dodge ZEO Concept is an electric car that shows the Americans are starting to shy away from fuel-guzzlers.
Although the concept is not that practical, given its 23-inch rims, some of its features are sure to find their way into production in a few years time.
The Dodge ZEO uses a 200kW electric motor which Dodge has been sharing amongst its concept cars.
