Dr Seruzawa has a concept too, but it doesn't involve electric cars as much as it involves September Carino.

Finally gave up on the oxygen destroying bomb eh?

Smart never seemed so smart in the first place. Nobody that Ive spoken with that has owned or driven one would own or drive another. The dealership is gone completely now in my hood. Other than being able to nose in on a parallel parking spot they seemed like a joke to me. Sure wouldnt want to be in a crash in one. That is if I could get in one at all...

Smart Cars get worse mileage than a VW golf TDI. Sp do many hybrids for that matter.

Hell, I can get 40mpg outta my little shatzbox Hyundai Accent 4-door. And it's built as well as any Toyota ('specially the Prius - have you ever driven or ridden in one of those rattletraps?).
