Tiny Electric Commuter Car is Greener Than Riding the Train





We’ve all been hearing for years how much more eco-friendly it is to take
the train than it is to drive – but this is the car that could change that.
The Prominence Commuting Device is an ultra-compact electric vehicle that is
not only street-legal (at least in Japan) but beats the train on CO2
per-person emissions.

Built by solar car racing group Team Prominence, the PCD is made from parts
that are readily available to people who want to follow the team’s lead and
build their own tiny electric vehicle. The little powerhouse can travel 90
km (56 miles) on a single charge and the battery takes just four hours to
charge completely.

Sporting only three wheels and one seat, the PCD is definitely a commuter
vehicle and not a family car. Rather than regular side-opening doors, the
PCD features a hatch that lifts up to allow passengers access. This
definitely adds to the vehicle’s futuristic looks.

Although the PCD can reach speeds of up to 46.6 MPH, it is classified as a
motorized bicycle/small motor car, which means that on Japanese roads it is
only allowed to go up to 37 MPH. Which, after you see its tiny size next to
regular cars, seems like a good thing. A collision at higher speeds (or with
a very large vehicle) would be totally devastating to anyone in the PCD.

Tesla big rig (and its $200K sporty sibling), there are a ton of reasons why
long haul trucking isn't the best ...
