    I saw a rather boxy looking, two door hatchback car going up 4th avenue around 1:30pm today. It was new, with no license plate, and all it said on the side was 'electric'. I wish I had my camera with me.

    Anyone know what this was? It's exciting to see these on the road. Pretty soon our Prius will be out of date!

    Dave, Did it have 3 or 4 wheels on it?

    I'm guessing it was a ZENN NEV (Neighborhood electric vehicle) with top speed of 25mph and a range of 35 miles, it won't be raplacing most Prii anytime soon. They are neat little cars though, made in Canada and cost $13,000-$15,000. www.zenncars.com [​IMG]

    These are the ones that are supposed to have ultracapacitors (instead of batteries) made by EEStor by the end of this year. If EEStor's product comes to fruition with the specs they are claiming the EV world should get very interesting in the next couple year.
