This week Inhabitat reported live from the Los Angeles Auto Show as we brought you the hottest new green cars — beginning with the 2013 Fiat 500e electric vehicle. We’re also eagerly awaiting the unveiling of BMW’s new i3 Coupe concept. In other green transportation news, JR Tokai unveiled Japan’s new lightning-fast 310 MPH MagLev train, while Amtrak announced that trains traveling between Chicago and St. Louis were cleared to accelerate to 110 MPH on a short stretch of track. It’s no MagLev, but we’ll take it! Designer Jeffrey Eyster also unveiled the MRV-1, a recreational vehicle that doubles as a sustainable nature retreat.
