Peapod Mobility Electric Car

Cute As a Button: Peapod Electric "Neighborhood" Car

I'm all about the electric vehicle, so naturally the Peapod Mobility electric car caught my eye. More like a neighborhood people mover than a take-to-the-road-with-the-wind-in-your-hair type of ride, this car's purpose is well served. Perfect for trips to the grocery store, dropping the kiddies off at school, heading to the library, and finding a parking spot downtown. I'm seeing a lot more Smart Cars in my hood than ever before, so it's a good idea that Chrysler took over this design from their subsidiary GEM. You know, to keep up with the Joneses and all.

The Peapod can go 40 miles on an eight-hour charge and gets up to neighborhood speed limits of 25 miles per hour. Although not many specs have been released, the Peapod looks to have an iPhone holder/charger built right into the dash, and appropriately will begin to take orders starting on Earth Day, April 22 of this year. I think it's totally cute. What about you?
