Lost on their way to another holiday party, our technology junkies pull over to look up directions on their iPad 2. They could have mapped out their route using the OnStar link-up in their electric-powered 2012 Chevrolet Volt, though. This gadget splurge can travel up to 80 kilometres on a single charge and is eligible for a generous gift-with-purchase: an eco ride rebate of $8,232 in Ontario.

Herskind + Herskind Electric Simplicity bicycle
If you prefer your electric mode of transportation to have two wheels, look no further than Herskind + Herskind's gorgeous green ride. Wood-grain fenders, leather-wrapped handle bars and a swanky saddle check all the style boxes, while a lithium-ion battery that takes two hours to charge up for a 25- to 40-kilometre ride makes it much more of a gadget than your average pedal pick. $2,400, Cycle Couture.
