AutoblogGreen’s Top Ten most popular stories of 2009
Now that 2009 is drawing to a close, it’s time to look back and see what stories spoke the loudest to AutoblogGreen readers. Which topics got the most attention (i.e., clicks) this past year? We took a look at the traffic records and found there’s not a single hydrogen vs. EVs debate post to be found. Oh, and only one that features bikinis. We were surprised as well. Number 10 is pictured above – a quirky and way cool VW bus sidecar – and the rest are available after the jump.
Who doesn’t like the idea of a flying car, especially one that actually works? Add in biofuel and you’ve got a winning idea.
We appreciated the miserly performance of Audi’s sweet hatch, and so did you, apparently. If Audi can get the same kind of reception in the general market as they do here on AutoblogGreen, then their clean diesel push might really go somewhere.
Ahh, politics and green cars. Always a good combination (for comments, if nothing else). Whatever happened to McCain, anyway?
Well before all of the real troubles at Aptera became public knowledge, rumors that you could one day buy one of these cars at the big box retailer really got people’s attention. Even though Aptera has pushed back their product roll-out plans, it doesn’t mean that other electric vehicle retailers shouldn’t pay attention to the message here.
Phantom traffic jams don’t happen when the cars aren’t there, but when there doesn’t appear to be any reason for traffic to grind to a halt. It’s strange, but it happens all the time, and MIT mathematicians are trying to figure out why.
Choice quote: “Our daughters have a beautiful first name that must not be associated with a car, so let us unite to bring pressure on a multinational which is going to destroy this pretty name for our children.”
No comment 🙂
Everybody likes a takedown, apparently.
That this post ended up at Number One did surprise us. I guess people who visit a car site – even an environmental one – still like their cars. Guess that shouldn’t be a surprise. Thanks for another great year. Let’s see what surprises 2010 holds.
