Netherlands Start-Up Offers Electric Car

... For $37 A Week

Would you pay $37 a week to have access to an all electric car with 250 miles of range and a top speed of 92 miles an hour that can accelerate to 60 in 7 seconds? For most of us, the only question is “Where do I sign up?” Amber Mobility of Eidenhoven in the Netherlands plans to offer just such a car. It says prototypes will appear in 2017 and cars people can actually buy will be available in 2018.

Its first electric car, appropriately called Amber One, is meant of move four people efficiently and as cheaply as possible.

It looks like a clay model right now, but that shape is extremely function-oriented, and it is claimed in the article to perform similarly to a Nissan Leaf in terms of acceleration/top speed. If they can gain a even a niche presence into the rigged automotive market, it will have promise. Most of our best innovation remains vaporware, unfortunately. I would hope this project doesn't suffer the same fate, but it tends to happen more often than not.
