An interesting car is being produced in Toronto called Zenn, Zero Emission No Noise. It is an urban car that has a maximum speed 50 km/hr. Have a look at it at http://www.zenncars.com/
Interesting the company can sell it in 40 US states and not in Canada. Transport Canada is dragging their feet in giving it a green light. Looks like and ideal car for downtown travel. Price range is $11000 to $13000US. British Colunbia has passed legislation allowing it to be sold when the federal regulators allow it. We need to get the feds off their high horse and allow it for sale.
