The Null Device

Electric Smart

DaimlerChrysler have announced an all-electric version of their Smart microcar:
DCX claims the vehicle will cost one-third as much as the petrol version to fuel, has the same 0-60 acceleration, and when fully charged will have a maximum range of 68 miles. The batteries are underneath the vehicle, and the electric motor is in the rear.
The Smarts will be (initially, at least) available only on lease, and are being launched in November in the UK.

(I'm not sure which I'd rather have: an electric Smart or a hybrid Vespa. In London (not the sort of city that encourages car ownership), probably the Vespa.)
