From the Tokyo motorshow.
Honda’s new rear-wheel drive electric roadster concept offers a 160-kilometer range, a 0-37 mph (60kph) time of 5.0 seconds and a top speed of 99 mph.
Ridiculous steering concept, but apart from that it’s pretty cool. Electric cars I think have a lot of potential, if first of all we can find a way to provide enough electricity to run them, and 2nd of all we make a solid switch before the people and the world as a whole are completely broke as a result of spiking oil prices/peak oil/declining EROI. Or are we too late already? Oh yea, and third of all if we can somehow overcome the looming shortages of rare earth materials such as cobalt, lithium and platinum to make the transition.
