Driving an insect car seems to be a fun idea. I had love to drive it some time very soon. Some more interesting tips can be found at http://termitesvic.com.au/pest-control online.

You can get an electric motorcycle that will go 100 miles and go 100MPH for just a little more than this.

They could make a version for warmer climates that isn't enclosed. That would save weight and cost. Doing that would probably allow them to further reduce the weight by making it narrower. Maybe narrow enough to only need on set of tandem wheels. The weight savings might even allow for carriage of a passenger seated behind the driver. That would be kind of a dangerous vehicle though.

It is fine if they want to keep the ugly little toy in Japan. But a vehicle like that has no place on the roadways in the USA. We don't need such a piece of junk over here. There is simply no room on our roads for a vehicle that is a glorified extension of the drivers cell phone system.

Insect seems appropriate because you'll look like a bug on the window when some idiot runs a red light in his big old SUV and T-bones you.

The specs do seem quite similar to a golf cart. A new golf cart will hold two people but doesn't have doors. The price of a new one is on the order of $8k so this is clearly better if it is street legal. The 60km/hr limit is a problem though.

It's got a top speed of 37MPH and a range of 31 miles. At least a golf cart seats 2-4
