If you are an extreme DIY person, then we think we have a new project for you! How about building your own electric car. It is now possible, thanks to the Japanese, for you to purchase all the parts needed to build your own electric car.
The car is a tiny one-seater vehicle, street-registrable in Japan as a “motorized bicycle”, and, in a brilliant triumph of confusing marketing, is called a Pius. You know, since there’s no other electric or partially electric car named something that sounds really, really like “Pius.”
