Maybe you noticed it on the lot at J&S Auto Centre over on Logan Street.

No doors, no exhaust pipe, and
that curious smile on its face.

I was curious, so I went there and asked Shelley Horn, "What's up with that?"

She said it was a new 2000 GEM made by Global Electric MotorCars.

Horsepower is 3.5 and it weighs 1300 pounds roughly.

Top speed is about 30 mph.  It can go about 65 miles on a single charge.
She climbed in the driver seat and said "Let's go for a ride!" She flipped on the ignition, and for a moment we were both stunned... There was no sound. Seat-belted in, we drove around the block.  The Gem car got great pickup, and fantastic gas mileage ('cause it's electric!).

It usually retails for $8995, but you can buy it for $7595 at J&S Auto Centre.
