You no longer need a big truck or powerful 4x4 to get your gear where it needs to be. Traditional trailers might be heavy and require tons of horsepower pull them up hills and down trails, but for the enthusiast who doesn’t happen to own an F350, the TetonX might be the perfect solution. With models starting around the ultralight 700 pound range, you could be hauling gear in a Prius. The secret is a savvy utilization of lightweight composite materials. And if you do happen to have some horsepower to spare, some of the heavier models will open you up to more storage capacity, and other custom features like a kitchenette, or roof mounting racks.

Microlino Electric Car
Drawing its inspiration from the 1950's era BMW Isetta, this compact electric city car reminds us of the Little Tikes Cozy Coupe from the 90s. Although its not yet available to the public, the two-seater Microlino is only 8 feet long and allows entry for both the driver and passenger through the single front door. The Microlino rides at around 56 mph and can travel almost 125 miles on a single charge. We like to follow these all-electric vehicles that are pushing the trend forward and we'll keep you apprised on this one.
