Car-ing for the environment

I got my L’s when I was sixteen. Haven’t done much driving since then and admitting that makes me feel old and lazy. But anyway, a lot of my friends have started getting their P’s. I would also like to be able to drive freely. Mum says I can’t have a car till I’m twenty-one. She reckons I won’t have anywhere to drive to anyway. It’s probably more for the feeling of accomplishment or something. Dad said I can have a reasonably priced car, though, a few months ago. I spent that night looking up crash statistics and car ratings and finding the cheapest but most fuel-efficient and safe car on the market. I don’t really drive anymore. Mum reckons I don’t need to anyway because even if I get my P’s, I won’t have anything to drive.When I do drive, I want an awesome car that I can be proud of because it doesn’t emit too much of whatever chemical gas or whatever compound into the atmosphere. I am also terrible at parking… And I have problems adjusting the seat to get a good view of the road. I’d need a really specific car.

So then I came across this article through my RSS feed on Google Reader. Let’s be serious for a minute. I really want this car. It ticks all the boxes. All of them. All of them. Let me spell this out for you.

Requirement Yes/No
Affordable Yep
Environmentally friendly Yes!
Little AND Safe YES
Crazy extra features YES!

This is completely and utterly, the perfect car for me. I owe you one, RSS.

Come on, man. Look at these stats:

“The production Fold will weigh less than 1,100 pounds and will be powered by lithium-ion batteries for a maximum range of about 75 miles. The four in-wheel electric motors have a total output of 20 horsepower, good for a top speed of 31 miles per hour. The design successfully withstood in-house crash- and safety-testing this year, Mr. Isoird said.”

I should definitely add this car name to my Google Alerts.

Anyway, I have to go and be a bratty daughter and beg my parents to teach me to drive and get me this car.
