Merged the 2 threads.

I was wondering if someone would post this before I did. Answer, yes: 2 of you did

Here's the YouTube vid:



It's an interesting concept for sure. Light weight, hub motors, and an interesting business model.

To aim for a more "sustainable" model, they claim they will only lease the vehicle rather than getting into a cycle of planned obsolescence by introducing ever newer models. Since the company owns the vehicle, they say their approach "rewards longevity and low running costs".

The lease would include both the vehicle and its fuel.
