Electric Car Sold at Wal-Mart

I SAW THIS & THOUGHT IT WAS REALLY COOL! "Walk into a Wal-Mart in the not-too-distant future and among the thousands of products for sale will be an electric car. It will not be a remote control car, a golf cart or a little scooter to help granny cruise the aisles. The battery-powered automobile will look every bit like a Mini Cooper. This is because it will be a MINI Cooper, just with a powerful electric motor under the hood and a stack of lithium batteries where the gas tank used to be." -MSN.com

Oooh, I really really love cars like that and can totally picture myself driving one around. I do wonder how it would do in a wreck though....

It's a Smart, not a Mini. The Smart has been in existence in the EU since at least 2001. It's a joint venture between Mercedes Benz and Swatch, of all people.
