Cool little car. Not perfect but definately a step in the right direction.

A dealer in Wisconsin started carrying them not too long ago. Couldn't legally drive them out of the lot because the city didn't allow NEVs. They got that changed now.

Would be great to have them go faster, but it is a speed/safety/regulation issue.

My electric motorcycle can legally go any speed I can get it up to. Also, cars converted to electric don't have to worry about NEV laws because they already have the crash testing and airbags.
