Seabubbles electric water taxi tests in Paris

Water taxis, electric boats and hydrofoils aren't new... yet the combination is quite attractive:



2011 Honda Insight + HID, LEDs, tiny PV panel, extra brake pad return springs, neutral wheel alignment, 44/42 PSI (air), PHEV light (inop), tightened wheel nut.
lifetime FE over 0.17 Gmeter or 0.1 Mmile.

That's interesting. I wonder where it falls on the efficiency scale, Watt-hours per passenger mile.

They could use a rim drive propulsor or three.

I'd ditch those gull-wing doors for a sliding hatch. It's more nautical.

If I leave here tomorrow, would you still remember me?
