The Peapod is a gas-free, emissions-free car that looks like it's been spawned by those speaker sets you can buy for Apple computers. The "pod" design and see-through panels are part of a user-friendly design that also includes hands-free iPhone operation, mesh seats, and recyclable materials used in its construction.
The new Peapod goes into production next year, and will have a top speed of 25 mph and a range of 30 miles per charge. Chrysler says it's street-legal in more than 40 states and can be recharged in under eight hours in a household 110-volt outlet.
So, instead of a silly Vespa, why not give up all pretense of manhood? The GEM Peapod arrives in showrooms late next year.
