This thing has been getting a lot of good buzz. It's on ABG and was discussed favourably on the EVDL this week.

Sort of a "lite" version of the Corbin Sparrow / Myers Motors NMG.

By being a motorcycle in the eyes of the law, it avoids the NEV speed restrictions.

Very clean, and easy entry/driving too. I wonder how far/fast a low slung enclosed version would go.

Hello -

Reminds me of a modern post WWII Messerschmitt. The price-point is decent. How many projected build hours are required? ..... Ok, found it here :

Can I sell them?
Sure! Buy a kit and then sell assembled BugE's
You should be able to make about $500 for 20-40 hours labor.
Soooooo, assume double that for a first time build. 80 hours labor is very decent for a kit.

I've been looking at this for sometime, and considering m y options. The 3000$ is for the kit which doesn't include all of the parts, the 4000$ is a fully assemble BugE being sent to you minus the batteries. Batteries aren't included cause of shipping cost, could you imagine the charge of getting those sent over not to mention the hazardous material that it would be considered. I'm considering getting it fr the summer when gas around here will breech 3$ not much for some state but TN doesn't have a high standard of living that can compensate for such a price.

Yeah, I thought 3K was too good to be true.

Well, if you do get one, let us know. A few folks on the EVDL also piped up and said "I'm getting one!".
