    They managed to go through the whole interview without mentioning the range or the charging time :Rofl1:

    My experience of electric vehicles is you are lucky to get half the claimed range

    The NZ equivalent of Uncle Clive.

    No hope of braking without ending up with a flat nose.

    As a work of engineering art - magnificent.

    With that volume of battery, a mile or two.

    Illegal as a bicycle in the UK, too fast and no pedals, so it would need to be certified and registered as a motorbike.

    And the YIKE bit is when someone pulls out in front and you head butt them. Hands behind your back to ensure maximum injuries.

    I'd love to see his face first time he tries. Not a lot of hills in Christchurch.

    Maybe one of the optional accessories are Super Clogs - high friction soles.

    Followed by

    Super Helmet with advanced nose guard.

    Braking parachute.

    Ejector seat.

    Last will and testament kit.

    Funeral insurance.
