Cool-looking machine, seems fun to ride.
It could make a real difference if they convince people that's it's a tiny car rather than a covered motorized tricycle, and get single people to buy it.
It's a glorified tuk tuk (damn thing can't even carry passengers like tuk tuk)
>The idea though is not to replace its pioneering hybrid Prius or best-selling Camry, but rather to give people an alternate way to dodge around in clogged lanes like a bike messenger, but with more a "mom van" type safety feel.

>Too tiny and flimsy to be safe
Looks like a deathtrap waiting to happen. Without even seeing it in real life I feel like it wouldn't be safe at any speed over 35mph, no way in hell I'd drive one on the highway. Also looks like you couldn't even carry a single bag of groceries, so what's the point?
that features a 2.5 horsepower and 55 lb-ft electric motor coupled to a single speed transmission. Fuel is supplied from a 10 kW*h battery that can offer enough juice for around 30 miles.
,, (SIBro,, keep a bucket close)
,i likeit., buthe specs are all over the place., 2Kw motor can run 5 hours on 10Kw battery?, but they only get 30 miles?
,, an E-Velo costs less and is available now., and,, its a Velo.
These things have been driving around more as of late.
