I couldn’t be more excited about what I hope will be a wide range of electric vehicles that will hit the market over the next few years! But if you want to go green right away (at least when it comes to mowing your lawn), consider buying the first electric riding lawn mower. The Amp Rider is now available from Ariens – www.ampbyariens.com. Ariens says performance is similar to the gasoline version, but it is much quieter. And while it costs more than a gas version, it’s operation cost is a fraction, and you don’t need to worry about messy gasoline and oil.
If you have a bigger budget and longer timeline, and want to go much faster, be sure and check out the Fiskar Karma, an absolutely beautiful four door electric sports car scheduled to be released next year – http://karma.fiskerautomotive.com.
