Today in Cleantech

If Tesla’s sexy roadster and Fisker’s fetching Karma sedan aren’t enough to convince you that green cars are more than super-sized golf carts, then two items over at Earth2Tech will. First is the new GigaOM TV series, Green Overdrive. In one of its inaugural batch of videos, Josie Garthwaite takes the Volt for a spin. Sure, the car is a gadget lover’s touchscreen dream, but it’s more encouraging to see how well GM’s advanced sedan looks (and behaves) at home on the road. The same can be said for Nissan’s Leaf, which looks like any other car on the road as seen in recent spy shots. And yes, it’s a good thing.
