Not much luxuries in that car... Bike?... Bar? Pull up windows? :lol: Funny the first time you see it but the lack of luxury makes absolute sense to me. A no nonsense electric vehicle everyone can afford. Where would the ICE car be if it stayed a toy for the rich like it was at first? If Henry Ford did not offer the car to everyone. The EV world needs its Model T. Elon? You reading this? :roll:


P.S.: Or maybe this is just vaporware, or Toyota will make the little E-cars but sell them $50 000+.
I am so sorry that you are experiencing difficulty in your life, but if you send $10 at paypal.me/Ray1964
, you will be in my thoughts and prayers.

Ugly!!... you're supposed to DRIVE it... not gawk at it... as though it's a florescent dog turd littering your front lawn.

^^ Hehe... "Ugly" in the eyes of the beholder perhaps? Human history has a long history of "ugly" to behold... :)

it does look like a florescent dog turd. Motorcycles and trikes are inherently cool looking. It takes effort and bad taste to make them look bad. Why reward such antisocial behavior.

Curious what the crash protection level is on these Toyotas, Arcimoto, etc? How do they do when a dually monster Ram suddenly cuts the right hand turn into your path? They look kind of hard to jump out of and bail quickly if you need to for some reason. Maybe I'm just behind the times.
Yuba Mundo w/BBSHD
Specialized Hard Rock w/9c clone, statoraid, hubsink
Trek Fuel 90 w/BBSHD
Above all run on 14s4p 52v li-ion
Ecobike folder 36v
Currie Flyer scooter 24v on 24ah of SLA

Every trip made with electric bike is one less car trip, saves money, no toxic fumes, less noise, less impact on roads.
