OK, electric, cool. Simple motor with few moving parts, low maintenance cool. But I am a mom, so talk to me about safety. How much does it weigh, what are the crash ratings, airbags front, sides and headcurtains?
Please tell me that it doesn't accomplish the mileage by being so light weight that if it's in a crash it's a serious crash. Also, since the battery at 12K is the most expensive to replace, does anyone have an idea how easy it is to damage in a crash?
And how are insurers dealing with this car? Is it more expensive to insure since they don't know what to expect?
