Metro Buddy - Click above for a hi-res gallery
The Metro Buddy was officially revealed at EVS 24, and we now have a gallery of official renderings, as well as pics from the coming out party, to share with you. On hand to lift the cloth from metallic matte orange and green cars were Norway's most famous TV weather personality Siri Kalvig (herself a Buddy owner) and Erik Solheim, Minister of the Environment. As you will see in the photos below, the event was well attended and we hear the cars had lots of camera-toting visitors during their time on display.
This latest Buddy should begin production this October and be available to buyers in December. The company plans on producing 5,000 of the little electric wedges with sales efforts beginning first in Scandinavia. If you dwell in Europe and have a hankering for a Metro Buddy of your own, we are assured that the three-seater will be made available there as well. We suspect that they may have another, slightly larger, variant in the works. We'll let you know if anything comes of that.
