I stopped by Eugene’s Earth Day 2009 Celebration with my family, where I met the makers of this cool little car:
While this kind of car is totally impractical for a mom with 2 small kids in the car (aka me), I could totally see my parents driving such a thing, or my husband commuting to work. Besides looking like something out of the movie Wall-E, it can go about 30 miles without a charge and costs you a penny per mile to drive it for "fuel" (according to the BugE web site). And now that Lane Community College won EWEB’s $100k grant to build a solar-powered EV charging station, your fill-ups might just be free!
