Ecooter - the bizarre new Chinese electric car that shall not be named in polite company
I am pretty sure there's a problem with the China Post's English, because it says, "The ITRI will continue to develop automotive electric motors and energy-intensive battery systems to be installed in the vehicle's wheels, in an effort to simplify its construction." I highly doubt engineers would place the batteries in the wheels, but then again, there's not a lot of tradition going on in the Ecooter in the first place.
There a video of the Ecooter parking in an unimaginably tight space after the jump. Smart fortwo, eat your heart out.
