This smart fortwo color selector has been my dream car for a while..when you get to the site click on the yellow in the color wheel..I call it my "Banana boat dream car". they have great mileage, 40 to 45 miles on the highways, and very low carbon emissions via a converter system cleaning it all the time. I saw it in time magazine a few months ago and cut out the page. They are very safe and the front, top and sides are built of very strong steel material. They used water based paints for the color of the car. Read all about it! They have been driving these cars in Europe for many many years now..wish our country had been as smart!
They are available in the U.S. They are going to try to make them electrical cars if enough Americans buy them..they sell for $12,000 now but if more Americans purchase them then the price will go down even lower. This is my plan to hopefully drive a very small car in the future and to save on gas and help the environment by driving much less, as I drive much less than most people do already. The gas is just too expensive for me. I drive around on an empty tank a lot lately..so far so good! My old small American car is slowly dying and old...so that's my dream plan..either that or I will be doing a lot of walking..
I imagine in my mind many people driving these cars, all around town and on the freeway in this country and we all honk at one another saying "hey let's save on energy and do our part"!...then they will transfer all our new cars over to electrical for free! Well that would be nice woudn't it?..you never know..:o).
