Invisible Mercedes Baffles and Beckons Onlookers

Mercedes is making luxury hybrid competition green with envy with its fascinating new futuristic F-Cell ad. The F-Cell is a hydrogen fueled Mercedes--watch as the car disappears to tout the brand’s new zero-emissions approach to the hybrid market!

The F-Cell generates electric power while producing little more than pure water and thus zero emissions. It is a 2.0-liter petrol car with a 100-kW/136 horsepower electric motor…not exactly heavy artillery in the awesome power department, but good for the environment as a daily driver.

BMW Delivers the First ActiveE Stateside

BMW is known for superior engineering, and that includes pushing the pedal down toward the creation of luxury hybrid cars. The brand has just delivered its first ActiveE electric baby in the United States, setting the tone for a greener future. When it comes to hybrid technology, it seems that people either embrace it or reject it faster than Snookie can manage to intoxicate and embarrass herself in a bar. Either way, the technology is advancing and likely here to stay.

Ferrari Fueled by E85 Unleashes 875 Prancing Horses!

A forward-thinking Ferrari aficionado has gone a bit green, not with a paint job, but with an E85-fueled Ferrari FF hatchback. The Ferrari FF was reportedly converted by a Norwegian aftermarket developer and boosts the usual 650 prancing horses up to an impressive 875! No word on if Ferrari approves of this mad science, or if the FF will now stand for ‘Flex Fuel’. End sarcasm.
