Until a week or two ago when I was driving to an eatery, I thought pretty much that electric cars were pretty much a novelty (such as the Tesla). Saw an electric car dealership, and am proven wrong:
The cars there looked pretty little, but for an in town runabout, where the mini pickup costs around $12k, it may be something to consider for the commute from one area of town to the other without using a highway. I then checked out the car maker:
They have the little Xebra models imported from China, but surprisingly, they have some electric cars that don't look like ass (IMHO.) No prices on the ZAP-X printed though. :/
Anyone know anything good/bad/ugly about these guys? This is the first time I've heard of an electric car maker, other than the guys making the Tesla. The maker is using loopholes (classifying the small ones as motorcycles, and using only three wheels) to get them street legal in the US, but its better than nothing.
