Commuter Cars Tango EV on Jay Leno's Garage

Tango Electric - Electric - Jay Leno's Garage

If you've visited his site before, you already know Jay's no stranger to EV's.

Latest episode he looks at the Tango. (11 sold to date, says the head honcho.)

Have you ever seen an electric car do a burn-out? Check out inventor Rick Woodbury's Tango! It's safe, it's super fast, and it's five inches narrower than most motorcycles to dart through traffic like no other car ever has before.

Latest mods: 3-cylinder Mitsubishi Mirage. EcoMods now in progress...
Ecodriving test:
Manual vs. automatic transmission MPG showdown

has launched a forum for the efficient new Mitsubishi Mirage

Cool -- thanks for posting. I got all nostalgic and found the Aptera video that Mr. Leno made a little while back:
