Created by Neil Young with a team of engineers and automotive experts, the LincVolt is an argument against reliance on fossil fuels. The 1959 Lincoln Continental has undergone several changes since its first version, now relying on a plug-in battery system paired with a Cellulosic Ethanol-burning generator. It offers a pure-electric, zero-emission range of around 50 miles and releases 86% less emissions than gas when the generator kicks in. Paired together, the 5,000 lb. vehicle now gets the equivalent of 55 mpg, far better than the 10 mpg of the original combustion engine. Young is still known to drive the car, which has logged over 55,000 fossil fuel-free miles.
