Miles Automotive is currently selling street legal, low speed all-electric cars, built in China.

I've driven one.

They supposedly have a 'real car' (Li batteries, 120 mi range and 80MPH) planned for an 08 rollout!

(No really www.milesautomotive.com)

I bet it's recalled for lead paint and leaking batteries. Oha nd I bet it crumples like tin foil in a low-speed accident

A lot of college campuses have "intended for off-road use only" Chinese microvans.

Ours has an electric Geo Metro hatch...complete with unpainted bumpers!

I saw a Zap Xebra display at the NY-NAIAS two and a half years ago.

I was NOT impressed. It's was quite horrific.

The fit & finish on these things was "dollar store sunglasses" at best.

?? That's just 75 pounds per person!! Not going to work out well in my family of lard asses.

Yes...that's absurdly low. But didn't Chevrolet sell the Geo Metro Convertible with a weight capacity of 288 pounds for two passengers and their luggage?
