    Default Electric Car

    THis little electric car just pulled into my place. He needed to fill up! The owner is the father of one of my daughters schoolmates. He just bought the car and was not sure how far he could drive.

    The car is registered as an official auto. He can drive it on the Autobahn if he wants. To me it looks like a covered bicycle. It has a top speed I think of around 75 kilometers per hour.

    It has pedals he can go as far as he want's to. In reality here is where a tiny diesel engine would be great. To power the car & charge the batteries.

    I'm guessing that it is okay on the Autoban because a real car could drive right over it with out getting hurt, right?

    It looks like it should have a set of hang glider'esque wings and a backwards engine and propeller pushing it.

    I give the man credit. I would be terrified to drive that lil thing on the road.

    That's cool! In my neighborhood, the meth-heads wouldn't even have to break into it, they'd just pick it up, and walk off with it.

    There's someone here in town (a university professor, I believe) that has one just like that except white. I got to see its big brother a year or so back when they were competing in the X-prize for electric vehicles. The company is German if I'm not mistaken.
