    This is practical in town travel where a ton of pollution is generated. In town travel is the least efficient and most polluting. Just keep it plugged in and get years and years of service.

    Nuclear, coal, natural gas, ect would all be better sources of energy for these cars! WE don't have to destroy thousands of miles of land this way.

    so, let me see if I understand.

    Most of our poor live in cities, and you want them to buy another car to drive around town or suffer from higher gas prices.

    Is that correct?

    The point being = driving cleaner is better than driving a polluting vehicle constantly.

    Vehicles are among the most polluting sources. Eliminating vehicle exhaust is big and I mean big. And I save plenty of GREEN bucks in the process.

    Have no fear these cleaner critters are on the way:

    Americans dont want to drive those gay little cars. Not even debatable.

    If you want one, God bless.


    I get my Mustang tuned at the shop where this vid was shot ( Mustang Magic......Bayshore, New York by the way!!!)

    ..........well over a million hits. How many hits would you get on a vid of one of those gay little shitbugs? 17? Maybe 21?

    Actually these carts are seen a lot in wealthy gated communities to run errands and such. And to get to the swimming pool. My sister in law has several in her neighborhood. They are too much fun.
