Oh it is soooo cute and very affordable. it is he new enviromentally friendly neighborhood car. It only goes 25 mph so it is suitable only for small towns or neighborhood driving. They are working on developing a version that will be able to go on the highway. It is soooo cute though I want one!! They are only $12,500!!!

Ya, I saw that on Martha Stewart this morning. It is cute and for the price it is on my list. Only goes 25MPH though. Can't you get a ticket for upstructing traffic on some streets cause around here it is 30-35MPH. Hmmm.

It woul really depend on where you live. Where I live I could go to Kmart, Publix and possibly even walmart with no problem. i could definatly go to work since it is 2 minutes away.

They are kind of cute, but I don't like the idea of how long they have to charge. That is scary. It seems a golf cart would do just about as good.

HHMMMMM eight hours I would just plug it in overnight. I do that to my scooter (when I have good bataries right now I am without bataries ) when I charge it. I have an electric scooter.

The PeaPod is all electric so no gas. It won't be released till 2010.

Yes, I think it is cute as a bug's ear. What I did not know was the price. If it went 35 or 40 I might want one. But where we live, you could get a ticket for going too slow. Also I would wait and buy a used one for less.

No, this is the first I've heard about it. I check out the car lots every so often, looking to replace my Geo Metro. The only thing they had comparable was the Aveo. I don't like the look of those. Guess I'll have to wait till they develop one for the highway! I live 16 miles in the country. A town car just won't work. Good luck on finding one!

Only 25 mph? They have got to be kidding. That will never catch on. Even in town most speed zones are at least 30 mph and no body goes that slow either. In the United States we have the need for speed. They need to crank it up if they want to sell them anywhere but in an old folks home.

I've never heard of this type of car. Wish you would of included a link so we could see it for ourselves. I'm too lazy to go searching for it. I wouldn't pay that much for a car that only goes 25mph. $5,000 yeah, but not $12,500.
