On April 22 Boeing's Future of Flight exhibit will host the annual Earth Day event. While primarily flight oriented, the Earth Day event typically features prominent new green technologies in other industries. Last year's Earth Day event featured the Tesla Roadster and the Boeing U-787 hydroplane, powered by electricity and biofuel respectively.
This year the event features WIKISPEED, the automotive headliner. WIKISPEED is sponsored by Alibre and is a lean automotive company that has engineered the SGT01—an ultralight four-seat commuter car that according to highway fuel-economy test simulations can achieve up to 114 miles per gallon running on its gasoline engine. The SGT01 is the lightest road-legal car to receive a five-star crash-equivalency rating on front, side, and rear impact and is available for purchase currently at $28,886.
We'll be showing our support at the WIKISPEED booth, so if you are in the Seattle area come stop by and say hello!
