Teeny electric car has a weeny carbon footprint

Car ads often show a lone car speeding along a scenic highway. But in reality, most driving is done in and around cities, with gridlocked traffic, shorter trips, and tiny parking spaces. It’s this scenario that Uniti CEO Lewis Horne had in mind when he developed a new kind of electric car.
Horne: “Its agility is more important in a city, so sharp turning radius, automated parking, a lot of co-pilot features, better visibility and a smaller form factor. Whereas a normal car is sort of big, heavy, flashy kind of thing, this is more of a clean, minimal, sleek – quite a futuristic design.
