Electric car powered by poo unveiled by Queensland sewage treatment company

A Queensland sewage treatment company has unveiled its latest electric car powered by human waste. Four years after introducing an electric Mitsubishi hatchback powered by poo, the firm Urban Utilities has put its second electric car on the road and called it “Number Two”. The Hyundai Kona electric SUV even has the registration plates “NMBR2S” (number twos is rhyming slang for poo, in case you weren't aware).

Polestar 0: Carbon-neutral electric vehicle due by 2030

Volvo's spin-off electric brand Polestar has announced plans to develop "the first truly climate neutral car" by the end of the decade. Cleverly dubbed the Polestar 0 – following on from Polestar's 1, 2 and 3 models – the project aims to eliminate CO2 emissions entirely from the vehicle production process, rather than simply offsetting carbon emissions by planting trees or through other means – the latter approach adopted by carmakers such as Volkswagen.

As reported by Reuters, the approval comes after German courts issued an injunction against Tesla’s site preparations for the plant earlier in the week. The German court stated its ruling was final.
