We spotted the elusive Tango downtown yesterday afternoon in front of Mizuna. The bright-red car parked perpendicular to the sidewalk was tough to miss. Curious pedestrians, unsure of what they were seeing, stopped momentarily for a closer look.
It's electric powered, smaller than a Honda Goldwing, and best of all the Tango is headquartered locally. This baby is 8'5" long and 39" wide and the top of the line T600 goes from 0-60 in 4 seconds. For the average commuter it costs about 1/2 that of a gasoline car per mile. Concerned about rollovers? Don't be. The website vouches that it's more stable than most sports cars. They even have a video clip demonstrating its handling ability (quicktime - 4.5 MB).
Interested? Reserve yours now. George Clooney just bought one in April.
Unfortunately only the T600 is available at this time. Visit www.commutercars.com.
