to spot an interesting vehicle on the roads: "Spotted: one electric vehicle
on the highways of Atlanta, Georgia. Sighted around 6:30pm EDT, going south on
I-85, traveling ~60mph (had a cool hum). It was a single seater, three
wheeled wonder. Can anyone identify make, model? Any details on this
bugger, like: range, efficiency, top speed, acceleration, cost, and cell type?
I could only get several pictures which didn't turn out too well, since I had to gamma correct two of them.
Another interesting thing that I've heard about electric cars: they have purposely
put in noise makers in the wheels (like those plastic tri-cycles back in the
day) because they just ran too quiet to be safe. Is this true?"
pictures didn't turn out too
badly, as you can definitely make out
much of the shape of this thing. It's more like a motorcycle than a car, but
it still looks interesting enough. Hopefully more vehicles like this will be
making their way on to the markets (and the roads) sometime soon.
