Japanese firm Modi Corp develops a Do-it-Yourself electric car
How about a Do-it-Yourself electric car? If you like the concept then head straight to Japan where a firm named Modi Corp has developed a built-it-yourself micro electric vehicle. Who knows you could learn a trick or two and probably build one in your own backyard, if you are one of those who loves all things DIY. Dubbed the Pius, this Do-it-Yourself single seater electric car measure only 2 ½ meters in length and can travel about 25Km on a single charge at 35Km/h. According to Modi Corp, the micro electric car can be registered as a class-1 motorized bicycle in Japan, and is ideally made to be marketed to electrical and mechanical engineering student to help them understand how EVs work.
Scheduled to make debut in spring of 2013, the Pius will be made available in six colors to choose from. There is no word on price the Pius kit will sell for, but it’ll surely be worth every penny – who wouldn’t want to drive a car build yourself?
