"If we decided to drive electric cars and charge their Lithium battery with wind, solar and other green power generated energy - time is study Rare Earth Elements. Every time you click on your Blackberry, iPhone or use your PowerBook you are at the mercy of all these elements."







There is plenty of buzz surrounding this year’s Tokyo Motor Show, and, unsurprisingly given the focus on emissions and fuel economy throughout the industry, green cars look set to dominate.
However, the talk is no longer about hybrid cars which have become a stalwart of Japanese manufacturers such as Toyota and Honda – instead electric cars that run on rechargeable batteries appear to be the focal point.
Leading the pack will be the Nissan LEAF, which will be on display to the public for the first time at the show. This mid-sized hatchback goes on sale in Japan in late 2010 and is billed as “the world’s first affordable, zero-emission car”. It can travel more than 160km on a single charge and has a top speed of 140km/h.
Though Nissan has made it clear that electric cars, rather than hybrid cars, are its gateway to the future, one hybrid car supporter is not going to be left out of the electric revolution.
Instead the world’s largest car manufacturer Toyota will debut a new version of its electric concept car, the FT-EV. According to Akihiro Yanaka, who oversees the project, the time is “almost ripe” for cost levels, batteries and performance to evolve a step further.
The Tokyo Motor Show kicks off on Wednesday – for more information on the green cars that will debut at the event, check out The Green Piece Column at TheGreenCarWebsite.co.uk, which will be published this coming Tuesday."
