Roughly the same size as a Smart Fortwo, the MyCar will be built at GreenTech's Mississippi factory and should hit U.S. streets by late 2011. Recently, GreenTech Automotive received certification to export vehicles to Europe and claims to have already signed a distribution deal with Danish firm Greenabout. Other deals with European distributors are supposedly in the works.
GreenTech says the U.S.-built MyCar stays true to the automaker's motto of "no green technology is truly green unless it is affordably green." Pricing for the MyCar has not yet been released.
