The American Electric Kurrent: A Cool NV

Neighborhood Vehicle The KurrentNVs (Neighborhood Vehicles) have always seemed sort of pointless to me. I never understood the need for them with faster EVs such as Tesla around. Yet, American Electric based out of Ferndale, Michigan has put together a NV based off the European Micro Car.

The Kurrent has a range of around 35 to 40 miles at about 25 to 35 mph. Its slick design makes this more than your typical NV (that seem more like glorified golf carts). The Kurrent can be plugged into the same socket as your household appliance and recharges in 8 hrs. Although it is an NV, it might make the perfect suburban car or perhaps even a car that can be used for short commutes. Hopefully we'll be seeing more from American Electric.
