The Only reason it doesnt go 55 is because there is a law limiting it to 25 mph, since it hasnt gone thru all the crash testing and airbags and stuff. People get around this by building 3 wheeled vehicles. VW bugs are dangerous and no airbag. why force electrics, that need to be light, to weigh like 4000lbs just to pass some stupid crash test? Laws are bent in the direction of a gasoline paradigm.
