I'd be interested in a stripped down cheap electric car that fits in between a scooter and a regular road worthy car. Thats because with kids I need a car but also most of driving is around the city. I would need to own two cars though in this situation and then we would ditch the scooter. But what I an envisioning is a type of souped up scooter that you are not permitted to drive on the highways.
A super electric buggy!
Actually Taichung is well laid out for introducing electric scooters as the roads are pretty wide and straight in many parts. I have seen a lot of electric scooters in Guilin also. I know the commies have started regulating them as most are classified as electric bikes but much more powerful and ridden badly, buts let's hope the commies don't make yet another mistake in trying to emulate the West in the wrong way.

Seems like it'd be a fairly trivial modification, though idiot-proofing it to stop people stranding themselves with a flat battery/burned-out starter might be tricky.
