    Wow that thing is sweet! Would love a PEV like that! I want to see the crash tests vids once they go full production.

    They say their pack is 8KW........... so they think the typical EV has 32-80 KW ?

    But it looks great and the videos are impressive. It takes a LOT of battery and motor to get a motorcycle to 100 mph. Brammo didn't do it until they added a six-speed transmission to theirs. Wonder how much juice it takes to keep the gyros spinning ?

    Probably not as much as driving at 100mph... but if the thing gets hit and breaks it may cut off your feet..

    The C1 makes Aptera look as primitive as a Big Wheel

    I have seen a couple of these types of videos. Seems like a great idea for those that live in a congested city. Especially considering most people's vehicles only carry one occupant most of the time.

    I like . . . the brunette. The pod car . . not so much.

    You might like the pod car if she sits on your lap? :)

    That would be more distraction than I would like.

    But............. yeah.
