      For now, the most practical and affordable solution are hybrids like the Prius; they aren't as clean as EV's but more practical. Lack of charging stations and limited range make EV's impratical for most Americans at the moment.

      What about Acabion electric vehicles? Acabion's horizon covers 150 years easily, and its speed potential covers todays 120 km/h as well as tomorrows automated 600 km/h on elevated Acabion tracks or even 20 000 km/h in later maglev-driven intercontinental vacuum tubes. Acabion vehicles are the first official successor of the car, coming soon to the U.S.
