Wanted to share the new vehicle we just got. This is called a GEM, it’s an all electric car. This is the E4 model. We are doing our best not to produce emissions. My husband already bikes pretty much everywhere. I bike to some places. The kids can walk/bike or take the bus to school. But sometimes it’s a bit far-especially with kids, or too much to carry on the bikes. So here is our solution. Our town happens to be the perfect size for this vehicle; it’s eco-friendly and the actual distance to various stores or places we go in city limits is only 5-6 miles. So a trip across town and back is maybe 12 miles, 15-20 if we make multiple other stops. There are at least 6-8 cars like this in town already. I do need to drive for work so will be using the standard car for that and for any long distance trips. But ideally when I’m not working or we have to make a quick run in the evening this is what we we’ll be driving. It goes up to 25 mph and has a 25 mile range before it needs recharging.

The kids are just totally excited about this and love it so far. The neighbors like it too. It’s a very different driving expereince but in a good way. It makes no noise when stopped.
Thanks for looking.
