Gold Lady Bug Electric Car
We’re nuts about tiny electric cars, and this Nissan Nuvu concept car rolled out at the Paris Motor Show is the coolest one yet. The 9-foot minicar seats the driver up front, a passenger seat alongside, and room for a kid or groceries aft. Its green nature extends beyond its whisper-quiet electric motor; many of its raw materials are recycled or organic.
Nissan says the Nuvu is the company’s vision of an electric car circa 2015, but can’t we have something like this today? If Nuvu were to be built by the 2010 timeframe like the Chevy Volt, maybe Nissan would be brave enough not to dumb down its design like GM suits did with the Volt. Oh well, guess we’ll just have to wait for that similar-looking Toyota iQ to go electric.
