Tango into small spaces

Ok anyone who either reads this blog or knows me personally, knows I'm "green" when I can be and that I have a passion for alternative fuel vehicles. So when I ran across the Tango today I simply had to pass on the information.

Communiter Cars Corp. is making these little beauties. They are two seaters, one in front and one in back, that are narrower than a modern motorcycle. The idea is that by using Tango's we could double the capacity of the existing roadway system plus all the eco-advantages of an electric car.

At the moment the 80-mile range of the car makes it out of my reach, unless there was a place to plug it in on campus, and the price is a bit steep for an around town car inaddition to my driving-to-campus car. So I guess I will just keep an eye on this one and see what happens with their future production. But believe me if I could afford it I would order on today...what can I say I'm a cutting edge kinda girl.

To secure a place in the build sequence for a production Tango, a fully refundable deposit is required. When your vehicle is allocated a manufacturing date you will be asked to confirm the order and select the color and any appropriate options.

Please download, complete, and return the reservation form with your deposit.

Tango T600 Features ($85,000 with $10,000 deposit)

Tango T200 Features ($39,900 with $1,000 deposit)

Tango T100 Features ($18,700 with $500 deposit)

What can I say I like it. LOL Reminds me of the Corbin Sparrow but with two-person capacity and a real eye for safety, not that the Sparrow doesn't just the Tango is so clearly designed around safety. Sparrows are more like motorcycles with shells, this seems like a redesigned car.

Plus the blue Tango sorta looks like Nemo from the front. What girl wouldn't love that.
