    Maybe we should 'rapid prototype' one using foam-and-fiber glass. Then get a used Leaf for the donor batteries and electronics. <GRINS>

    Link?

    Are you talking about the Honda Odyssey 2018? Gas engine only? Maybe 30 MPG highway which some minivans (like the Pacifica) have achieved 28 MPG. But I doubt it'll be 30 MPG city, probably around 22-24.

    I remember when VW reintroduced the Beetle, it came with a flower holder on the dash. Maybe, if this actually comes out, VW will install a roach clip holder in it. :D

    Sounds like someone must have recently watched "Up In Smoke" again.
