Sex and the Car: changing our culture

Hey everyone,

As you may know, I have been making some videos about my work with electric vehicles.

Here's my latest video. It is less about electric vehicles than it is about our culture - how we use cars - how we sell them - what's cool and sexy, and what isn't.

Anyways, it's just sort of my random thoughts on how we "sex-up" things that are bad for us.

Enjoy!

I have to find a pic that I have from sema 04 of a half dressed asain girl on an ev:-)

But seriously, I agree 100%.

The only way my car is "cool" to average teenagers (my barameter of our culture) is if I tell them how cheap it is to run; otherwise I get why don't you buy a real car like a taho or surburban; or atleast why don't you drive your supra.
