I think a few wheelchair/walker users would be furious with sunken or raised tracks all over town. Good idea but even Personal Rapid Transit with motorized pod cars hit a wall in our town in 1981.
I have a 3-wheel scooter from Scooterland in San Jose, CA. It also goes 12 mph. Unlicensed & uninsured a few years- I never had any problems without licensing or insuring that vehicle. Only problem with it so far has been hills. (okay; and that 12 mph - I have that need for speed! )
Better Place is right back up this morning: http://gas2.org/2013/11/26/billion-dollar-project-better-place-bought-450000/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+IM-gas2+%28Gas+2.0%29 I will have to Th!nk about how long it will last this time (ps- Th!nk folded). However Alibaba in China seems to keep on going whatever happens. They seem to have hundres of EVs. An EV is planned to be sold in Texas in 2014 that I want, but Alibaba is selling those right...
I am very pleased national assistance is being offered to the Phillapines. Greed, politics, religion, and national "one upmanship" or control should be left at home in my opinion. People helping people!!!
I think this vehicle began in Hungary a few years ago, then it appeared recently on Alibaba.com (China). I am curious about testing, whether CA. would allow it, licensing in the US (I do not think golf carts are licensed); and if anyone imports from Alibaba so I can avoid all the "middlemen". I have a 3-wheel scooter from Scooterland in San Jose - but they do not offer the Kangaroo wheelchair vehicle I got these links in the email from...
Better Place project from SF to LA also "gave up the ghost".  The plan was many charging stations so an EV would have longer range.  Hopefully the high-speed rail will compensate for this transportation loss.
Nuther one: bye bye Coda!
An article came out yesterday mentioning "Zombieland".  It was about another subject (Reak Estate Foreclosures) so my first thought was about how ecologically benificial that could be; then I read further- oh! you meant a movie!  Thanks for the humorous confusion :-D!
I thought I had found this link here but I do not see it.  Recently a Xebra was for sale; and I thought I could use the cargo shell to move  back- less than a mile. Then I read this 2008 article which was mysteriously in my inbox: http://www.thetruthaboutcars.com/2008/03/2008-zap-xebra-review/#comments All 103 comments sure tells a tragic toll.  May explain a lot; and better than I!
I thought this thread "died" along with Zebras after the lawsuit in this county.  Yes, they are legal - steering wheel or not in CA.; it is legally a motorcycle.  Size, I guess.  I had a 1993 City-El enclosed 3 wheeler, with a steering wheel, in 2007-9.  It was registered and insured as a motorcycle.  Roll bar and top - no helmet was needed.  Those are made in Germany (and still are most likely) so I sold it running - when it broke down I did not have to chase down...
