Imperial Coach Builders (LimoLand.com) has produced an electric limosine. Unlike a hybrid car, which is fueled by gasoline and uses a battery and motor to improve efficiency, an electric car is powered exclusively by electricity.
In just a few years, this might be the trend of the future.
"There are so many transit vehicles out there and it's a major consumption of our oil and gas industry, so we decided that we wanted to put together a vehicle obviously that was eco-friendly," says retail sales manager Gary Spaniak.
LimoLand.com transformed this electric vehicle to hold more people.
"We took a regular Nissan Leaf electric sedan and we cut it into two and basically extended the frame and everything to add a center section to it to stretch it into a limousine," says Nathan Daily, head electrician.
The creators believe that over time, it will be less expensive than a normal gas consuming car.
"Right now it takes any 12-volt battery charger and also Nissan sells a quick charger that you can be back up and running in 30 minutes," says Spaniak.
"The only thing you have to maintain is the battery," adds Daily.
Spaniak says a lot of big cities have a gas consumption rule for limo businesses.
"The limo operators have to decrease their overall gasoline consumption, so obviously by putting an all electric leaf would decrease their overall gas consumption and be able to legally stay on the road."
All you have to do is take the charger, plug it into the car, and plug it into an outlet -- no money needed.
"Plugging it in and turning it on is as easy as turning on a light switch," adds Spaniak.
There are even charge stations now being applied in every state at rest stops on major highways. So why are electric vehicles not popping up all over?
"I think people are just kind of waiting for technology," says Daily. "People are waiting to see more on the road."
"Because there's something called range anxiety," adds Spaniak. He says electric vehicles, like the Nissan Leaf, have approximately a 100-mile range on their battery life. "So instead of taking a long road trip and when you stop for gas and get something to eat, you're going to have to stop and get something to eat and plug in your car for a minimum of 30 minutes."
But the company seems to believe that the range will increase of over time with technology.
"I think they're going to catch on and when people go to the dealership to buy a car, more and more people are going to look at electric cars to conserve energy," says Daily.
The initial tax savings that people can get from an all electric car, in most states, is up to a $10,000 sales tax credit over the life of the car.
