Before you condem us all, look up how much coal it takes to run your electric car. Compared to gasoline, coal is very very dirty. I agree that most of us have no need of big engined vehicles, but don't think you save the environment until you can recycle your batteries. Electric power is inefficient and costly to maintain, so until we can do better, gas is still the best fuel to use, though using natural gas would be so much better. Just my opinion,

Many people in US make fun of this car. But I don't. I think what we have now with our environment is all thank to 4-5-6 liter engines of American muscle cars and trucks!! We should all think now of how our children will live, what air they will inhale, what water they will drink.. Prius is the future! Remember my words) William -

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
