Electric Sondors EV debuts in LA - the commuter car of the future?

Three-wheeled cars in this country usually have rather a negative stigma associated with them – just imagine a Reliant Robin and you'll understand the problem. But electric bicycle manufacturer Sondors may have just the thing to help the three-wheeler's case. It's imaginatively called the Model Sondors, and is pitched as "the most affordable, attractive and practical EV ever."

The Model Sondors is only a prototype currently, and comes courtesy of a crowdfunding exercise that raised millions of dollars. The company reached its funding goals in January, and finished the prototype seven months later. It's a two-front, one-back wheel layout with room for three people – two in the front, and one in the back.
