The future of electric cars isn’t Tesla. It’s golf carts.

Millions of people in China are buying off-brand electric cars, which are cheap, tiny, barely regulated, and extremely useful.

I love everything about these except that there’s no safety testing, which seems like should be necessary somewhere in between that for a bicycle and that for a car. They’re so cute! They don’t contribute to urban air pollution! They’re so much more efficient than larger vehicles!

I saw some electric scooters with fully enclosed “cabins” at my university campus (Canada). You could rent them out to get around as it’s a big campus with some distance between buildings. Unfortunately, I think they’re gone now, but they seem like a really good idea.

They should just bring back the “flying pigeon” bicycle culture if the cars are that small.
