Cuuute!: Is This The Next Electric Car-Thing?
The electric-powered E'mo was designed by the StauffacherBenz Studio and looks like the lovechild of a golf cart, Jeep and Tonka truck (wild night!). I'd ride in it, but I wouldn't be caught driving it. At least not by the police -- I don't have a license! (Think your mom can drive us to the mall later?)
...the car runs on lithium-ion batteries good for about 60 miles per charge and can run at speeds up to 80 miler per hour. A release date has not been announced, but the vehicle will sell for 10,000 euros ($15,000) here.
Hey, I'm all for it. Except two things: 1) I don't feel safe going 80 in a vehicle with no doors, and 2) the name. E'mo, really? Who wants to own a car that posts pictures of itself on Myspace crying and slashing its own tires?
