Remember Smart Cars will fit anywhere!
Even when they don’t, owners think they do, oh well.
First there was the Renault Twizy:

And now there’s the highly similar Nissan Quad:
Race them if you want to:
All the deets:
A Scoot Quad is a mini electric car that can carry two people. Say hello to the Quads and get ready to explore the city in a whole new way.
• Top speed of 25 MPH
• Range of 40 city miles
• $1 of electricity to fill ‘er up from a normal wall outlet
• Gets the equivalent of 250 MPG (after doing the math to convert the electrical energy to dirty gas equivalent)
• Produces 6% of the CO2 per mile of a car (including the emissions from the power plants that make the electricity)
• US drivers license and Scoot membership required
• Carries two people — that’s what the backseat is for!
• No freeways, bridges, or roads with speed limits over 35 MPH
• Quads are $6 up to 30 min, 20¢ per minute afterwards.
Someday I’ll ride one of these big heavy bikes, definitely for 30 minutes or less though…
(BABS / Ford doesn’t care what you think about BABS, not really. It will give you half your money back if you get confused by its marketing and end up getting charged ten times more than you thought you would, IF you contact them about your experience, so there’s that…)
As seen on Steiner in the Western Addition:
Definitely seeing more of these red scooters parked on the streets of San Francisco lately, for better or worse. That’s just my observation.
It’s time to take a look at what the peanut gallery has to say.
‘Bout what I expected – seems as if “range anxiety” was/is the big issue.
Oh, a new pricing scheme…
Via San Francisco photographer James Corrigan:
You know back in the day a plain “NO RADIO” sign sufficed. Those were simpler times…
Look, it’s Twizy! In red these days:
I’ve never seen an earth mover painted like this:
Used to see it parked on Waller.
It was involved with this fiasco last year.
