Green Sports Cars Get the Spotlight

The Daily News of New York City is the fifth most-widely circulated daily newspaper in the United States with a daily circulation of of 681,415. So when Daily News writes a story about innovative eco-friendly automobiles, that means a lot of eyes on smoking hot green cars.

Today's Daily News features two great articles about the changing face of green cars. The first article focuses on the Breeze, a small and funky looking beast of a very compact car powered by compressed air slated to be released in 2010. This air car can travel about 1,000 miles at up to 96 mpg on one fill up and sells for as low as $17,800.

The article right below is about newly zestified hybrid sports cars. Whereas the Tesla has been getting tons of press, this story focused on a few others including Toyota's new iQ, the world's smallest four passenger car measuring in at under 10 feet long. The article also mentions a prototype from Britain's Morgan called the Life Car, based on a 1940s Morgan, which runs on hydrogen.
