My Car of the Future, Today

Mario
Scottsdale, Arizona
"Voltbuggy"

Mario's vehicle

I always believed electric cars would someday help our environment by minimizing pollution, but the "freedom from the pump" that electric vehicles endow on the driver is a life-changing experience. Back in 1993, I built my first "car of the future." It is an electric dune buggy road racer named the "Voltbuggy." The 1990s were the golden age of electric auto racing, and since then I have been building and upgrading both competition and daily-driver electric cars. I would like to suggest that Tom and Ray experience the "karma" that comes with owning and driving an electric car—it may change their lives!
