>> You know the phase, saying something as the Cadillac of something means it's best. This is the Cadillac Converj. So I guess we could say it's the Cadillac of electric vehicles with this kind of power train, specifically the power train as seen in the Chevy Volt, range extended electric vehicle. At all times, the drive wheels are run by an electric motor through the battery pack then a very small lean burn gas engine kicks in and keeps generating power. Now you can keep driving until that little motor is out gas to generate electricity to drive the car -- you follow all that? But the technology isn't just driving this car. There's some good stuff inside. Several cool technologies going on in the instrument panel. First of all notice the main IP, OLED -- Organic Light Emitting Diode. We're barely seeing that in consumer electronics right now, really vibrant, really color-saturated. Touch screen ability on just about every surface. Also, proximity sensing. So as you move your hand over portions of the dash, that relevant area will wake up. A head up display is being envisioned, and of course blind spot detection and notice the car has no mirrors per se. Little stubby things that stick out -- just barely and those are cameras that replace mirrors and put the images on the screens inside. Yup, solar panel on the roof, that aids with trickle charging to keep things like accessories from draining the car. So the Chevy Volt is just a little too green and mini-crunchy for you, that's got a little more teeth.
