    BOB STONE: "We know that the car won't satisfy everybody's transportation needs. There's many people that need to use a car for just their business and they need to go many more than 50 miles a day. However, as a second or third car for the family, just use by the housewife, by the commuter, we think its very practical."

    Background: A company in Miami, Florida, has started production of the world's first mass-produced electric car. It's expected the car will sell for about 24-hundred dollars (about one-thousand sterling) and the manufacturers are aiming for the second or third car market. The top speed is just under thirty an hour and the car has a range of about 50 miles before the six heavy duty batteries need recharging. This is done through a standard household mains outlet.
