Very interesting! Shame it uses a petrol engine - a veggie oil diesel unit would seal the deal!

Might do on green terms but Joe public would be even more sceptical of it. Currently I've got to confess I'm not convinced about the hub motors primarily due to the unsprung weight but hey it catches the headlines and makes the news so at least that's a good thing. I would like to see one actually move though. I've seen a lot of cars grab headlines and turn into nothing real :(
