Our First Video Show: Green Overdrive Is a GO!

We’re very excited to present our new video show, Green Overdrive, brought to you by GigaOM TV and Earth2Tech. If it’s green, we’ll drive it. Each week we’ll test out a different eco friendly vehicle, whether it’s the latest electric car, plug-in motorcycle, or biofuel filled bus, and bring you our impressions as well as interviews with the companies.

We’re kicking things off with the first three episodes, where we drive Zero Motorcycle’s electric dirt bike, the Chevy Volt, and Ultra Motor’s A2B electric bicycle. Since we’re just starting out, we’d love your feedback or suggestions on what we should drive next, just add them into the comments. So far I’ve learned that a 150 lb. electric motorcycle can hit a squirrel at 40 mph and not topple over (that really happened). The green transportation revolution is here and we’re gonna drive it.

Start saving energy today, and start creating free energy today.....visit New World Solar Power!

How "green" do you think "hitting the squirrel" was???
If you were on a motorcycle and could not avoid a squirrel... either you have not acquired the skills to be a competent cyclist... or there's something you're omitting from your story.
At 40 mph... you've got more than enough reaction time... and with the maneuverability of a 150# bike... something doesn't add up.

I love the all-new Chevy Volt. I have seen a concept car about a year ago at one of the US auto shows and must say it's really an impressive package.

I currently dirve a Kia Forte, which is a nice car and doesn't consume much of the fuel compared to my other SUV (Ford Explorer). But I would tradi it for the Chevy if pricing was a bit more affordable. As far as i know, the Volt will cost somewhere in-between 30-40.000 $$.

Best, Kia owner.
