But wait… there’s more. Your cool new ride may look like it’s straight from the past—but it’ll drive like the future all thanks to its electric motor and Tesla batteries. The only thing it still needs? You in the driver’s seat. Taxes and shipping costs are covered.

Bill Nye and The Planetary Society

The Planetary Society is the world’s space exploration team. Co-founded by Carl Sagan and now led by CEO Bill Nye, the mission of the Society is to empower the world’s citizens to advance space science and exploration. To achieve this mission, the Society pursues four core enterprises: robotic space exploration, human space exploration, planetary defense (from asteroids and comets), and the search for life. They believe that space is for everyone!

I know Bonnie and David, owners of Zelectric, personally and they aren’t ahead of the curve, they created it.  They have been building fun stuff in San Diego, CA for a while.  You can check out their site here: Zelectric
