A new wave of super efficient — and increasingly affordable — electric cars is about to hit the market.
Ron Wilson of the Huffington Post reports that advances in technology and increased consumer demand for alternative-fuel vehicles have spurred automakers like Nissan, GM and Daimler to speed up development and construction of electric cars for the mass market.
Models soon to be available in the U.S. include the Chevy Volt, Coda Sedan, Tesla Roadster and Nissan Leaf (which Nissan claims will get an astonishing 367 miles per gallon).
