Video: Could the Next Big ‘Green’ Car Be Made from Hemp?Submitted by Allegory on Mon, 04/28/2014 - 13:22
Hey man, hemp is, like, really useful and stuff. Ok, outside of the advocate at your local head shop, there have been many reports on the uses of hemp. They include rope, and it is even used as a powder for protein shakes, but this is one use we have not heard yet– a car made completely from hemp.
In an effort to be the halo car of the stoner world, Calgary-based Motive Industries INC has created the Kestrel; an electric car made from hemp. The Canadian government is supporting the hemp industry and encouraging new uses for the substance, in addition to the more than 50,000 uses that already exist.
