Peapod Mobility Electric Car

Cute As a Button: Peapod Electric "Neighborhood" Car

I'm all about the electric vehicle, so naturally the Peapod Mobility electric car caught my eye. More like a neighborhood people mover than a take-to-the-road-with-the-wind-in-your-hair type of ride, this car's purpose is well served. Perfect for trips to the grocery store, dropping the kiddies off at school, heading to the library, and finding a parking spot downtown. I'm seeing a lot more Smart Cars in my hood than ever before, so it's a good idea that Chrysler took over this design from their subsidiary GEM. You know, to keep up with the Joneses and all.

The Peapod can go 40 miles on an eight-hour charge and gets up to neighborhood speed limits of 25 miles per hour. Although not many specs have been released, the Peapod looks to have an iPhone holder/charger built right into the dash, and appropriately will begin to take orders starting on Earth Day, April 22 of this year. I think it's totally cute. What about you?

I saw this a few months back on Martha. Something about the smiley face just makes me want one to run errands. But that's not going to happen.

I think these are probably more aimed at being the "golf cart type of car" replacement. My neighborhood has a ton of those, I would welcome seeing this little smiley face around town.

I love the idea!And I'm glad to see an American car company diving into the smart car arena. It's definitely the future!

Extremly cute, I love the smiley in the front! But the range is pretty unrealistic, and topping out at 25 mph seems impractical. But once the technology gets better, I want one!

i'm with everyone else - buying a car that can only do 25 and go 40 mi just really isnt practical. maybe if i could have 2 cars!

Once it'll travel farther and a little faster I'll be on the list lol. So cute!

I wanted one until I read that it doesn't go far or fast. I'll wait for one that goes long and fast. haha

Cute! But...I don't know where they're testing this, but all of MY neighborhood speed limits are 30-40 mph, and people drive a lot faster than that even with the speed bumps. Also, I live in a bigger city - almost nobody lives in close proximity to grocery stores and things to warrant a 25 mph top speed, maybe if you live near downtown... Also, the tires are kind of small...I'd be worried about busting them on potholes or running up on something!

I think its cute but agree with wmoonw.... top speed of 25 mph and only 40 miles max? I think I'll wait for another additional10mph and 10miles lol.

I love the little smiley face in the front, though :)

Wow! It's adorable! I was totally into it . . . until I saw the specs. 40 miles maximum range and 25mph top speed. . . . I'm waiting for an electric car that I can drive (30 miles) to work and back. I could get half way there with the Peapod, at least ^_^
