I am sure there is a niche market for this. Won't replace standard toads or golf carts but I am sure there are folks out there who view this as the ideal solution to a problem. If you were to be in one place that didn't require a car for long periods of time, something like that might be for you. People drive golf carts around our neighborhood all the time. Even to the grocery store.

it’s a solution in a desperate search for a problem.

Nice but I doubt it will be street legal in most states.

They should have made it the same size as Smart and looking closer to basic Suzuki Sidekick.


Street legal in SOME states on roads where the speed limit is 35MPH or less per both the article and what I know. Same as a Golf Car, provided it is registered for on-road use..

no use to me as I need 55MPH and longer range.


Home is where I park it.

I'll stick with my Smart car---same size as a golf cart yet has all the bells and whistles for the street and will go down the Interstate at 90 if you desire and it is a MERCEDES!!!!!!!

I think I will continue to use my Jeep Wrangler for a towed vehicle.
For one thing, it is towable four down, I do not need a trailer.
If I want to tow a trailer, I can load up my street-legal Kawasaki Brute Force ATV.
Thanks, but no thanks. I neither need nor want one of these things.

I would have expected it to at least be towable 4-down if intended to be an RV toad.

LMAO @ the toad! looks perfectly safe unless you hit something...anything, really,,,larger than a 10-speed bike.


Thanks for the reply - its certainly much safer than a golf cart and its up to par with a lot of ATV's. Don't think of the negatives, you're missing the whole point of the comfort of being dry, AC, heat, windows, and close to 100 miles or range etc.

Regards
