E-Tracer video: Susan Carpenter takes the X-Prize winner for a spin

November 16, 2010 |  1:02 pm

Susan Carpenter writes about cars and motorcycles, and this week she kills two birds with one stone. She test-drives the E-Tracer, the X-Prize-winning electric vehicle that looks like a cross between a car and a motorcycle.

The E-Tracer beat 127 other X-Prize entries competing to build the world's most fuel-efficient vehicle. The "cabin motorcycle" can travel more than 200 miles on a single gallon of gas equivalent and reach a potential top speed of 200 mph.

Read Carpenter's review here.
