'Open Source' StreetScooter

The StreetScooter is a $7,000 EV with a 74 mph top speed and an 80-mile range. The most interesting thing about the vehicle is how it came to be. What began as a partnership of 10 companies has grown to a collaboration among more than 50 auto parts suppliers, tech companies and software developers. Each one of them had a hand not only in building the StreetScooter, but in creating it.  -  See Autopia
