I heard Ian Clifford interviewed in CBC radio today. The interview didn't know anything about Eestor and was asking him how he was going to get his low speed EV approved for Ontario. Clifford explained that in the next few months that issue will be irrelevant as they will be able to produce cars capable of highway speeds by using a new technology for Texas.

Heard this today. At least he sounded convincing!?!

Correction; it is not the Government of Canada but the the Government of Ontario.

So it's easier to get a high speed vehicle approved than a low speed vehicle? That's odd.

Strangely enough (however hard it is to get one approved)it is. The highway capable car is the square peg for the the square hole. Governments don't actually want to deal with low and medium speed vehicles.


Just assume everything I say about EEStor includes the phrase "if it works".

A highway vehicle that's been crash tested, yes.

The current Zenn really is just a step above a golf cart. People are not exaggerating when they make the comparison.

Hopefully EESU's won't be "strangely" difficult to approve.

I find it strange that you can drive motorcycles and even some mopeds on major roads, but not an LSV. IMO, it should be all about the speed of the vehicle and not the crash testing. Motorcycles wouldn't pass a crash test, so I would think that as long as a person knows that the vehicle they are buying hasn't passed a crash test, that they should be able to buy it if they want and drive it on major roads.


You tell me.
