finally, an electric car to get excited about

It solves the dilemma of being eco-friendly and able to pick up chicks.

Still doesn't make sense to me. Maybe that's why I'm not an engineer nerd.

Cool car, regardless. I'd buy one if I had the money to blow.

I would be very unsettling to hit the gas and not really hear anything, but instead get pushed back into the seat. I suppose I would get over that!
