RE: [DMCForum] Re: Rich A -- How about this for an electric car?



One of those SMART cars made it here where I live.  I thought they weren't
approved for street use in the US yet.

I parallel parked by that thing and laughed when I got out.  That entire car
is the size of my crew cab area.  I could carry that thing in the bed as a
spare. :)

I knew they were small but not THAT small.

I'm personally waiting for the Subaru R1e.

85% charge in 15 minutes. 120 mile range. NO GAS required.

2009 is a long way away to wait though.
