The world's fastest electric car

"KAZ, the world's fastest electric vehicle that can reach speeds up to 311km per hour, drives through a business district during a test ride in Tokyo. The environmentally friendly 8-wheel drive car developed by Keio University, runs entirely on lightweight lithium batteries, emitting less than one third of the carbon dioxide of a conventional car."

Looks cool, but indeed hard to park anywhere.
Perhaps they can do a European version the size of a Smart. :)

Its a good idea, but I have to agree with twisted, big and bulky, a smaller type would be more pleasing to the eye and less of a hindrence(spell?) when parking, ;)
