For those who are really into being green during life might want to be green during their final ride to the grave as well. A UK funeral home has unveiled the perfect car for green fans in the form of a converted Nissan Leaf hearse. The car is dubbed the Eco-Hearse and it has a motorized deck that slips out of the passenger side of the car.
That deck makes it easy for the casket to be grabbed and carried to the graveside for the services. It is a bit strange though because the design puts the driver right next to the deceased inside the car.
The doors on the passenger side of the car are replaced with glass so people on the street can view the casket. The Eco-hurse was built by Brahms Electric Vehicles and it had sold two of the vehicles and has a third used as a demonstrator. The company builds the hurse on new cars, not used ones.
