Ugly Electric Cars II: OH NOES! UGLY CARS!!!



Ugly Electric Cars II: Or, The Idiocy Continued:

This is a Sunmotor Coupe DX...

The video explains it all...

The rear reminds me of a sunshade on a pram.

Thanks to EV-Enthusiast for the the info on the Commuter Car Tango...

"The red car (below) is the Tango Electric Car produced by Commuter Cars. It also lists for about $100k and has impressive performance specs. So it drives as well as the Tesla, but looks way worse."

This car costs $100,000 and there is a video just below the picture showing it off...

1974 Sebring-Vanguard CitiCar

These cars had a range of 50 miles and a top speed of 28 mph.

If you bought the upgrade for one 3.5 hp model up to a 5 hp motor, you could do 38 mph.

Made of plastic, the body was available in five colors, and the small ugly electric car could do a U turn in 22 feet...

2008 GEM E4

Chrysler bought up GEM to avoid penalties under the Zero Emission Mandate.

To be fair, the cars that are shown here are sold today in retirement parks where the folks apparently like them...

You can also upgrade them from 5 to 7 hp and get fancy chrome emblems in the upgrade...

This is a Kurrent, a Neighborhood Electric Car:

Specs are explained in the video...


This Is The Hiriko...


This is a Solare... An Electric Racing Car..


The GM EV1:

Not the ugliest of ugly electric cars, but it still deserves a place here...

All reports are however, that people who had a GM EV1 apparently loved these cars...

And they are very aerodynamic too, apparently the MOST aerodynamic car ever made... I REALLY hate the rear end though!

With the exception of the SIM-LEI (see near top of this page)

BONUS: Some very nice old cars and some really awful ones including some of the cars I haven't got video of, like actual video of the 1973 GM Electric Car...

Also some unusually ugly electric cars...

Bonus: The Jetsons Car..Or something like it...

The last week before all GM EV1 cars were crushed...

Going to the crusher...


This is a ZEM, A prototype car to prove that this idea works..

Bonus Fun: Search Google for 8th Grader ZEM.. 'nuff said

After looking at these, please click on the Jaguar button, Or the Tesla Button, or just click on any brand that you like!

Otherwise you might despair of ever seeing a nice looking electric car ever again!
