The movie explains more than I could ever really write into text. The cost of the vehicle, 3.500€ is about the equivalent of $5,100, with a tank that you fill up every 125 miles (200km) for only $2 (1.5€), with a top speed of 70mph. Is that, or is that not impressive?
Would this vehicle ever sell in America, considering our harsh patent process and oil industry? That, I'm not sure of. So far, it is only being planned for release in Europe and India.
The only thing I find more impressive then this; dealing with automobiles, is the DARPA Urban Challenge. I think I might choose to post about that next.
