Awesome. Seems like the perfect application where wind resistance is not a factor, lots of "idling", and being quiet is important. I was a bit surprised to see they got the whole battery pack under the bonnet though.

You also get fourth-row seating! They forgot the solar panels on the roof, however! *disappointed*
