Checking out electric cars

Tangereen is working on a school "magazine" project, and she wanted to write an article about electric cars, so yesterday we took her to Eco Motion to check them out. (I told her she should submit her magazine in the form of a blog, but she didn't really go for that idea. But wouldn't that be a cool outside-the-box, earth friendly way to create a magazine project?)

So, check this out. There's a little fake gas cover where you plug it in!

The engine is made out of lots of batteries.

They even have electric scooters. Doesn't Chuck look like he belongs on one?

I want an electric car! We figured we could save about $5000 a year in gas, which is about half of the cost of the car. According to the lady Tangereen interviewed, the electricity only costs a few pennies a day. Why doesn't everybody have these? Hey, leave a comment if you have an electric car! I'd love to know what you think of it!
