Prior to 2004 there were no electric cars left on the road, but then came the Smart Roadster. It also went just as quickly. The car looks fun and sporty, and is due to its low weight and decent sized engine for its body, but the problem is it was made out of plastic and poorly made at that. The car isn’t water tight. Now this is a problem for a non-electric car, but if your car is pure electric and can’t keep the water out, well you now have a 2000lb piece of mostly well designed plastic in your driveway.
