VW Beetle to run on electricity

This interesting Volkswagen Beetle might look all beat up from the outside, but inside the boot you’ll find an electric engine. The entire setup costs $29,995 – but think about the amount of dough you’ll save in the long run whenever you laugh at friends who moan and groan about ever rising oil prices. It costs just two cents per mile to charge its batteries, and comes with a 120 volt built-in charger. This electrified Beetle can hit a top speed of 75 MPH with a 70 mile range, and will be able to make it from San Franciso to New York and back at the cost of a mere $112. Acceleration-wise, this car ain’t too shabby either, hitting 40 MPH from a standing stop within 6 seconds.
