Australia is making a huge commitment to the proliferation of the electric car by outfitting their three largest cities with charging stations. The government plans to build 200,000 to 250,000 stations for each city in an effort that will cost approximately 1 billion AUD (about $667 million USD.)

While the charger-network will surely lead to an increase in Australia's domestic demand for hybrid and electric vehicles, their government is also proposing regulating the way the "refueling" charges are handled with a contract situation similar to cell phones.

So basically, the Australian government wants to allow (either the car makers or fuel suppliers?) to turn basic electric power into some kind of unique service that requires a contract to a particular party (other than the people who send you your electric bill)? Have they been consulting with the RIAA or something? Yeah, I'm sure people won't find a way around that...

Hey, monied-hippies, we've got your new car, right here! Check it out: It's a leaked photo of the 2010 Toyota Prius, and we like it.

The photos slipped onto the internet the other day, and Toyota has confirmed that they are the genuine article. The car will be officially unveiled at the Detroit Auto Show in January. No other details available right now, but we assume it's a hybrid. More pics at the source.

When engineering and mechanical geeks get together to race cars, everyone is a winner. Case-in-point, the Escape from Berkeley race, where a bunch of garage inventors drive from San Francisco to Las Vegas. The catch: No petroleum allowed, and fuel must be scavenged along the way.

Ten teams have entered the race, and strategies range from a wood-burning pick-up truck to a three-wheeled, steam-powered car that is the epitome of steampunk, to a vegetable oil burning Lotus. The car pictured above runs on  wood, cardboard, unprocessed veggie oil and even olive pits and walnut shells.

If you have a spare $45,000 sitting around (and who doesn't these days?), perhaps you'd like to purchase the above-pictured vehicle, The ECTO-1, an "official" Ghostbusters car used in the Universal Theme Park in Florida. It's on the eBays.

Busting makes me feel good.

Ford's Parent-Friendly MyKey

Just like the moms and dads of the world, Ford believes that "driving is a privilege, not a right". Introducing its MyKey techonolgy, Ford assures parents that reckless driving and stunting will not be tolerated on the road.

The technology will allow parents to limit the vehicle's top speed to 80mph, the stereo's volume up to only %44 of its maximum capacity, sounds off an annoying chime when seatbelts aren't fastened and reduce their teens' baller status to zero. MyKey will be a standard in the upcoming 2010 Ford Focus Coupe.

Naturally, 67% of teens do not approve of the idea through Ford's poll. Parents are now looking onto a new technology, where they could program the vehicle to drive back home automatically by 11PM.

Flying Car For Sale

An awesome VTOL (vertical take-off and landing) aircraft (read: sweet-ass George-Jetson-like flying car) has popped up on eBay. This prototype flyer is comin’ atcha straight out of the 80’s, whence it made hundreds of successful test flights, including one which made the news in 1989 (video after the break).

What would you use this thing for? The tactical advantage in water balloon and/or paintball wars would be formidable, indeed. As of this writing, a bid of merely $19,700 will put you in the lead.

In the midst of all this "hybrid" car craze, the folks at Magnetic Cars Inc. is set to introduce the world's first fuel-less, air-powered car as soon as 2010.

Instead of the pump, the car's acceleration is generated through a special special silicon salt (delicious) battery "that has 30% more mass power than a lead acid storage battery and can charge completely within an hour". Mighty impressive indeed. On top of that, instead of having pistons, this concept car will use the Magnetic Air Car design that takes advantage of magnetic technology.

Very ambitious, but the applied concepts have not been tested yet. The company is set to unveil the vehicle soon at an auto show in San Jose, CA.

Have you ever played a driving game and thought to yourself, "I could totally be a NASCAR driver!"? Us too, but sorry to tell you, you can't transfer video game skills into the real world even if you are a NASCAR driver.

Driver Carl Edwards learned this lesson the hard way. He tried a trick he'd learned in the video game world in an actual race and ended up nabbing second place. He was behind Jimmie Johnson in the last lap of the race and made an incredible move to skirt around him, knowing that he would hit the far wall, but believing it would be enough to still take the race.

"I planned on hitting the wall, but I didn't plan on the wall slowing me down that much," Edwards said. "In video games, you can just run into the wall and run it wide open. That's what I did, but it didn't quite work out the same as the video game."

Edwards came in second, but earned a place in racing history. Check it out below. (It totally would have worked in a video game, BTW.)

 

RIP: Paul Newman

Paul Newman was among the coolest men who ever lived on our planet, and this Friday, he went to the great beyond, a victim of cancer. Newman was an actor, director, race car driver, political activist and philanthropist. He could eat fifty eggs. He also designed many dressings and sauces.

Newman's acting career began back in the early 50s, and he starred in some of the most important films ever made, including classics like The Sting, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, Slapshot, Cool Hand Luke, The Verdict, Hudsucker Proxy, The Hustler, The Color of Money and more, more more. Just look at this list of credits.

At the peak of his acting career, Newman became a full-on open-wheel racer and team owner, and kept at it for nearly 40 years. He also set up a foundation that used film to educate youngsters on the perils of drug use, worked for civil rights, and created the Hole in the Wall camp for chronically ill children. Those salad dressings and sauces were all for charity as well. Newman generated hundreds of millions of dollars for worthy causes.

He was a real man. The kind they don't make anymore. More than just an awesome actor passing on, the death of Paul Newman marks the end of an era. Check out this scene from Cool Hand Luke, and pour some off the top for a great man.

Chrysler today shocked the automotive world by announcing they will be rolling out an electric car in 2010. In car years, that's next year! The cars work with a rechargeable electric engine that gets about 40 miles to a charge. They also come with a small gasoline engine that charges the battery, but doesn't actually power the car.

"We have a social responsibility to our consumers to deliver environmentally friendly, fuel-efficient, advanced electric vehicles, and our intention is to meet that responsibility quickly and more broadly than any other automobile manufacturer," says Bob Nardelli, chairman and CEO of Chrysler.  "The introduction of the Chrysler, Jeep and Dodge electric vehicles provides a glimpse of the very near future and demonstrates that we are serious and well along in the development of bringing electric vehicles to market."

The odds-on favorite for 2010 release is a sporty looking, yet-to-be-named two-seater (pictured above). The other two cars are scheduled to be included in 2011.

At last! Today, Nissan Motors and Sharp Corporation announced the world's first mobile phone integrated with a keyless car entry feature. Nissan's Intelligent Key System, currently installed in over 950,000 Nissan manufactured vehicles, supports a two-way wireless technology that allows drivers to unlock/lock their car doors and even start/stop their engines without inserting a key.

The mobile phone will be demonstrated first this September 30 in Japan. No official word yet if this new gizmo will make its way to North American and European shores.

No longer will we be in a situation where we speak to our friends with our mobile phones asking, "Where the hell did I put my keys?", then they answer, "Um, dude....I'm not there". But just make sure you don't misplace your phones either. Also, you can avoid both drunk driving and drunk dialing at the same time! Huzzah!

GM Unveils Electric Car

Hippie, rejoice! That slightly dowdy looking car above may be the future of green driving: It's the Chevy Volt, Chevrolet's entry into the hybrid car market, and it will be available for sale in 2010.

According to the company, the just-unveiled auto has a huge battery running the length of the car and is charged with a regular home outlet. It will go 40 miles without using any gasoline at all, and when the battery charge runs out, the petrol engine kicks in and give you another 300 miles.

It goes 0-60 in under 9 seconds, and it will cost about two cents a mile to drive as opposed to 12 cents for an average, old-fashioned car. No word on the sticker price quite yet.
