The Most Compact Urban Folding Bike Ever

Innovations in folding bikes have helped urban cyclists cram their vehicles into tiny apartments for years now--and the designs keep getting better and better, and smaller and smaller. And this new folding bike concept by Victor Aleman may take the cake--as you may or may not be able to tell, even the wheels fold up on this bad boy. More pics after the jump.

Natural gas can lead the way

Much of the debate concerning energy, climate and the economy involves how to manage the transition from fossil fuels to sustainable energy sources. In this context, it may seem ironic to promote one fossil fuel over another, but natural gas is an inexpensive, abundant and relatively clean fuel that can lead the transition away from coal and oil, while achieving significant reductions in greenhouse gas emissions and other pollutants over the next two decades.

Tiny, Fuel-Efficient Cars

Mazda hasn’t sold a subcompact in the U.S. since 1985 , but it’s reversing course later this year, when American buyers get their first shot at the sporty 2011 Mazda2. Thanks in part to its fuel economy and surprisingly generous passenger head- and legroom, the Mazda2, already on sale in Europe, was named 2008 World Car of the Year by a jury of auto writers.

Zip Car

It's been nearly a decade since our founders sat in a café and decided to bring the European car-sharing idea to Cambridge, Massachusetts soil. Once the wheels were in motion, it was only a matter of time before some major changes helped grow a little car-sharing company into the world's car-sharing leader. Today, thanks to cool technology, a member-driven user experience, and an amazing team of hands-on Zipcar enthusiasts, we are redefining the way this generation thinks about alternative transportation.

Prius
Toyota Prius

The best-selling Prius is synonymous with "hybrid" in many minds, and with good reason.More than 750,000 have been sold worldwide, and it's the greenest mainstream car on the U.S. market in 2007, topped only by the natural-gas-powered Honda Civic GX in the authoritative Green Book survey.
 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Civic
Honda Civic Hybrid

This green Civic is another leading hybrid in the U.S., with many of the same features as the Prius -- just not quite as many of them. The $22,600 Civic also operates somewhat differently from the Prius: the electric motor very rarely takes a solo turn, but rather is there to provide a boost to the 1.3-liter, four-cylinder engine.
 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Peugueot
Peugeot 107, Citro'n C1, and Toyota Aygo

In a feat of automotive cooperation, PSA Peugeot Citro'n and Toyota built three different branded versions of the same efficient city car at a jointly owned factory they opened in the Czech Republic in 2005. Available on the European market, the three models -- boast fuel economy of 61.4 mpg for the gasoline-engine option.
 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tesla
Tesla Roadster

This sleek electric sports car was unveiled in mid-2006, and its initial run of 100 cars sold out in three weeks. At a base price of $98,000, the high-end, lithium-battery-powered vehicle is only within reach of the rich, but its creators -- including PayPal co-founder Elon Musk -- plan to make an electric sedan that will sell for $50,000 to $65,000 within a few years, and a still cheaper model down the line.
 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Renualt
Renault eco2

Renault's "eco2" label,, assures customers that each vehicle bearing it has met several environmental standards: it does not exceed 140 g/km of carbon emissions and/or is biofuel compatible; it is 95 percent reusable by weight when it goes to the great garage in the sky; it contains at least 5 percent recycled plastics; and it was produced in a factory that continually strives to improve environmental performance.
 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Reva
REVA G-Wiz

The teensy G-Wiz is a hit with British motorists who appreciate not only the electric car's lack of emissions, but its exemption from London's congestion charge and parking fees. Technically classified as a "quadricycle" in the U.K. and Europe, the vehicle -- known in other countries simply as the REVA -- is manufactured by a U.S.-Indian joint venture.
 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fortwo
Smart Fortwo

A European standby, the Smart Fortwo has been rumored to be coming to America for a while now, but attempts to import it have been slowed by required safety and emissions upgrades. Still, three different two-seater models should be available in the U.S. next year, and 13,000 American drivers have paid a $99 deposit to reserve theirs.
 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Obvio
Obvio! 828

What is this cute three-seater? It's Obvio! The teeny-tiny car -- it's mini-er than the MINI Cooper by nearly two feet -- is a "trybrid," able to run on any combination of gasoline, ethanol, or compressed natural gas. It has fuel economy of 29 mpg in the city and 40 on the highway, and also comes in an electric version with a range of up to 240 miles per charge.
 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Camry
Toyota Camry Hybrid

Like the Prius, the new Camry hybrid actually runs wholly on its batteries at low speeds. Under the hood, its 2.4-liter, four-cylinder engine uses the Atkinson cycle for greater fuel efficiency.
 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Nissan
Nissan Altima Hybrid

This exemplary hybrid sedan is available only in California and a number of Northeastern U.S. states that have signed on to California's stringent emission standards. It's a mystery why Nissan doesn't sell it everywhere, since reviewers who've been able to get behind the wheel have good things to say.
 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Honda
Honda Civic GX

The Civic GX, which runs on compressed natural gas, has been called the cleanest internal-combustion vehicle on earth by the U.S. EPA and won top honors in the Green Book rankings. Initially sold for commercial fleets, the Civic can now be purchased by individuals and refueled at home with a special appliance called Phill that connects to a gas line.
 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Zap
ZAP Xebra

It might not be the most powerful vehicle out there, or the most practical, but the ZAP Xebra gets points for style. The three-wheeled electric sedan -- with its optional zebra-stripe paint job -- averages about 25 miles per charge, and can hit a top speed of 40 miles per hour.
 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fit
Honda Fit/Jazz

The tiny Fit looks novel to Americans, but as the Jazz it is well established in the Asian and European markets. Its upright, wheels-at-the-corners design looks like a Scion that somehow avoided the shotgun marriage with an SUV. Don't expect barrels of torque or high-end acceleration, but with its low emissions and respectable fuel economy.
 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mazda
Mazda MX-5 Miata

This whimsical sports car may seem like an odd choice for green warrior status, but consider that the venerable Miata gets 22 mpg in the city and 27 on the highway while keeping its air-polluting emissions relatively low. It scores high in the Green Book rankings, tying with the Toyota Highlander Hybrid on its overall green score.
 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Biodiesel cars

Any diesel car can be made greener if you fill it up with biodiesel fuel. Refined biodiesel works in newer diesels without any vehicle modifications. And with a kit from companies like Greasecar, any diesel car can be adapted to burn 100 percent vegetable oil, which can be sourced and filtered from restaurants for a wholly recycled fuel.
