Went to the San Francisco Auto Show last Sunday and was surprised to see the latest reincarnation of the Sparrow, by the previous originators of this vehicle.
20kWh 144v Enerdels, ac drive with regen, Curtis controller, etc. Upswinging door mated very nicely with the body. Roomier inside than the original, with a fancy dashboard.
Production in Hollister to start at the beginning of the year.
Details and photos on their website: http://sparrowcar.com/
Just saw on their website that participating in their Beta Program will run $33K.
Personally, I'm not interested.
