Now this is cool!

Harking back to my post earlier today, I'd like to suggest that with this car, the NmG (which stands for No More Gas) the Hamdaniyah-wearing extroverts could really stand out as bleeding-edge cool.

Item from Inhabitat

The design sits halfway between a car and a motorbike so the manufacturers prefer to call it a ‘Personal Electric Vehicle’, or PEV. And because the US Department of Transportation classifies the NmG as a motorcycle, it’s permitted to go on highways traveling to speeds around 75mph while other electric vehicles are legally limited to speeds of 35mph or less. A speedier drive is also likely because the NmG is allowed in many carpool lanes, due to being ‘fully occupied’ by the driver alone.

More information here at the manufacturer's website.
