Roadtrip tip: Recargo manager Norman Hajjar plans nothing less than the ‘Epic Electric American Roadtrip’ in a Tesla Model S with which he will drive 12,000 miles in 18 days to set a Guinness World Record. Happy travels!
Study tip: Scientists at the US Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory found that hybrid cars are significantly more fuel-efficient in India and China than in the US. This is due to different traffic conditions with more frequent starting and stopping, considerable amount of time spent idling, and low percentage of time spent on highways.
