      With a name like ŒNo More Gas¹, you can bet that this cute little personal
      electric vehicle is as good to the environment as it is to the user. Its
      size, weight and fuel make it much better for the planet, while its look and
      driving experience make it great fun for the driver. Looking like it¹s
      dropped straight out of an episode of The Jetsons, this tiny car can achieve
      speeds of over 75mph for a cost of $0.02 per mile. All this eco-goodness
      earned Myers Motors¹ NmG vehicle kudos at this year¹s Well-Tech Awards
      exhibit in Milan.

      Much of the NmG¹s benefits stem from its size. Holding just one person, it¹s
      much smaller than the average car. Smaller cars means more commuters can fit
      on the roads, getting where they need to be in a shorter time. The size also
      enables drastic reductions in fuel consumption, earning it the title of the
      most energy efficient vehicle on the road today. Its size also allows the
      NmG to achieve a range of 25 to 30 miles, making it suitable for the vast
      majority of commutes.

      Plug the vehicle into a 220 volt socket to fully recharge an empty battery
      in 3 hours. Fuel costs are around a quarter of the price of conventional
      oil-powered transportation. Charged using conventional electricity, NmG¹s
      size and power type reduces emissions by around 70% compared to a
      conventional fossil fuel-powered car. And, of course, emissions are
      eliminated completely when the car is charged using a home-based renewable
      energy system.

      The design sits halfway between a car and a motorbike so the manufacturers
      prefer to call it a ŒPersonal Electric Vehicle¹, or PEV. And because the US
      Department of Transportation classifies the NmG as a motorcycle, it¹s
      permitted to go on highways traveling to speeds around 75mph while other
      electric vehicles are legally limited to speeds of 35mph or less. A speedier
      drive is also likely because the NmG is allowed in many carpool lanes, due
      to being Œfully occupied¹ by the driver alone.

      The retro-futuristic vehicle is available in many bright colors for the
      reasonable price of $36,000. So, all in all, its an affordable, cheery,
      environmentally-friendly car that¹s supported by existing infrastructures.
      We¹re looking forward to spotting many more NmGs on the roads very soon.
