Yes, it's just one song in particular, theres no shredding or fast solos.
It is a mellow, instrumental, clean, song.

there is next to no point in that, sure, you can go places, but you can't take anyone, or bring anything back that is sizable, and it only travels between the speeds of 62 and 74.6 m/h.

Nope, China.


It could probably be imported, though, but that would cost you.


But Hell, depending on how much it costs it could still pay for itself in gas mileage, provided you're not ran over by a Suburban and killed.

your obviously not gonna take that thing on the interstate or the autobahn, so that speed is more than enough.


Its for commuters to go to work and school everyday and stuff.


EDIT: omg I just realized it would cost less than $10 to fill that thing. Holy ****!

Can you pick it up and wheel it around like the Peel p50?

$600? What the feck?

At that price I would NOT feel safe.*It's probably made out of wood and paper.

The shamwow guy looks like a rapist.

Also, that is a sweet little machine, but it's for sure a death trap. I'd almost take the chance for the mileage/cheapness...but no, I like life, to a reasonable degree.

I like the price, $600, but it looks like you could die if a car even touches yours while driving.

It's a death trap. Just like the smart car. If you live in a country that isn't infested with semis it's ok, but no...
If you had read the article you would know that it is actually extremely safe. Same with the SmartCar, actually, rigorous testing has shown them to be safer than most SUVs.

Compared to the mpg my car gets, that thing will pay for itself within weeks.

Hopefully they'll be in the US, but I highly ****ing doubt it.

I mean, we JUST got the Smart car last year I think, and we don't have any other European micro cars.

If you have ever seen an F1 car crash you would know this: Size does not mean a car is safe. It is a matter of how it is engineered. At the very least this car is safer, more efficient, cheaper and likely easier to use than a motorcycle.

Besides, SUVs are not the pinnacle of safety. If anything the tall riding position not only increases the chance of a role over but makes a driver feel empowered and more willing to take stupid risks. Staying alert and anticipating other drivers actions is more important than the size of the vehicle; after all, why do think so many people die when driving distracted or inebriated? Having only one person in the damn thing is probably one of the best safety features ever.

I'll buy 10 of them and when one runs out of gas I'll switch to the next one.
