Orange County, CA based Fisker Automotive is working towards releasing their hybrid named the Karma seen below on Road & Track

Yeah... I know, it's not a house or anything that relates directly to green building, but I'm REALLY looking forward to the day when electric vehicle ownership introduces some radically different ways of managing the supply and demand of energy in California. With an outdated electrical grid and a Country on the verge of financial collapse. So back to positive innovation... imagine that your electric vehicle is capable of trading energy at predetermined settings that you've determined are reasonable. Selling energy from your car to the grid during peak hours when demand is high for a lucrative cost per kilowatt and charging your car back up, taking power from the grid and storing it in your electric vehicle, during the evening when demand has cooled off at a drastically lower cost per kilowatt. This could very well be a reality if residents speak up and get passionate about common sense and what some of our logical next moves aught to be in regards to energy. Although Fisker's Karma is a plug-in hybrid and still requires dinosaur blood to go 0-60 in just under 6 seconds, it's poised to make an impressive 1st showing in the hands of it's CEO, Henrik Fisker.

For all the positive things that a handful of employees are doing at large utility companies, the monopolized utility companies receive a tremendous amount of money from tax payers and municipalities to either re-nvent themselves and/or to a certain extent, put themselves out of business. So you see, it's not just big oil that can expect to see a dip in their profits when electric vehicles begin to take flight... AGAIN (Watch Who Killed the Electric Car). Well... maybe not the oil companies, but the auto mechanics that rely on drama queens like the high maintenance internal combustion engines to provide their livelihood, the service stations at the corner quickie mart that will no longer be in demand because their petrol junky customers will now be able to get their fix in the safety of their own home, and many other ICE related businesses will suffer as we move into the electric car age. New careers will evolve, of course and is movement is without a doubt a positive move for the middle class. I'm thrilled about the idea that someone will be able to create their own electricity at home or work via wind, solar, etc.. and choose to either charge their car, sell it the power back to the grid, or use it to watch an important TV show about America's next sweetheart who's indulging in her newly appointed fame as a result of their sex tape that "accidentally" leaking out recently.

And you thought this was just going to be a Fisker shout out about their new showroom, didn't you?

I hope they hurry up and get some of these in production. It would be nice if a few other companies can jump on the band wagon as well. I think a gas/plug-in electric would be great, electric for around town and the hybrid for long travels.

The trailor for "Revenge of the Electric Car" makes it sound like Nissan is betting the family farm on electric cars so hopefully the big automakers will really get behind them again and big oil won't be able to stop it.  Oil controlled GM sure blew it with the EV1.
