video_left.jpgThere’s a definite shift right now in all thing transportation to look for alternatives in energy. Most prevalent are the advances in fuel cell and lithium ion technology making their way into future offerings from Toyota to Honda to Tesla Motors. There are also a handful of small private startups making waves with new green tech; the latest of which is Barefoot Motors and their Earth Utility Vehicle.

The EUV  is essentially an ATV with a green heart. It’s powered by an array of lithium ion batteries and runs silent and clean with zero emissions. Jamie Hyneman, co-host of Discovery Channel’s TV leading science show, Mythbusters, has joined the advisory board for the company to help with the prototype and final product development. 

The development of this green ATV is especially crucial for a market where close to one million units are sold each year — and overall expected to grow by 20% between 2005 and 2010. In addition, the California Air Resources Board has recently adopted a sweeping plan that would require all farmers in the state to use cleaner engines in farm equipment — something the EUV would contribute to nicely.

You can check out a video of Jamie driving the new Earth Utility Vehicle here.
