Since Will is Gas Obsessed...

I actually have very little interest in cars, but I saw this new vehicle on the New Scientist site, and figured I had to share. The car, which is cleverly called CLEVER (despite the fact that the acronym stands for Compact Low Emission Vehicle for Urban Transport Vehicle and should be called CLEVUTV), is the result of 9 Eurpean countries teaming up with BMW to produce a smaller, greener vehicle. And it looks amazing! It seems like it's part motorcycle, part go-kart, and part indestructible (unlike "donorcycles," it tends to crumple up around it's passengers safely). Even better, it produces even less pollution than a Prius! Of course, it doesn't have the hype of the  Segway scooter, but maybe that's because people might actually use it.
