I didn’t know squirrels could drive cars

Contrary to popular belief, the electric car is not dead. And “tree-huggers” are the new target market for a 40 km/h battery-powered vehicle. According to the makers of Zenn:

“The existing market in the states is predominantly gated communities or master-plan communities in the southern states. So that’s typically a 65-year-old plus person who uses this as perhaps their third or fourth vehicle.”

Um. Third or fourth vehicle? What are vehicles one, two and maybe three for then? And what’s wrong with walking?

Admittedly, the Zenn-man goes on to describe his future market of younger people looking for an occasional car. But I was already outraged by that point. Third or fourth car… I’m already feeling guilty for using one.
