Saw that on the news, guess electric cars are getting more popular all the time.

Whoever wrote the article doesn't know much, Ford S-10

I think it's great just to get press on electric vehicles in general.

Every news piece I have ever seen about electric cars usually has a feel of "oh that's cute, but it's just not practical for anybody".

They also never seem to mention the use of renewable energy or just how FUN electric vehicles are.

Our country seems to have some sort of notion that electric is good for toasters, fans, lights, forklifts, golf carts, mobility scooters, and every home appliance - but cars and lawnmowers need to be loud, expensive, and smelly!

I would really like to do a good job with the ElectroMetro so that it can be a showpiece of practical, economical transportation.

I should probably also clean up the motorcycle some more, just to make it look good for showing off!
