Seattle P-I: Tiny car could be big answer. [via Sheila]

This little car has a ton of cool features and it was designed by a father-son team from Spokane! The acceleration is insanely impressive:

As far as performance goes, the Tango is no slouch. Since electric cars–especially small ones–are generally thought to be slow and weak performers we set out to blow some minds by designing the Tango to accelerate through the standing 1/4 mile in 12 seconds at over 120 mph and travel from 0 to 60 mph in under 4 seconds.

Apparently the price point will be around $20,000 if they manufacture 10,000 a year; if they can ramp up to 100,000 it drops to $10,000.
