Smart car

U of T students swarm round a Smart Car at the Sustainable Energy Fair on campus today. (The guys in the upper left are watching a friend test-drive the other display model.) It's so cute! You could practically fit it in your backpack! And it uses only 4.2 l of diesel per 100 km!

Enviro-friendly cars like this were invented decades ago, but I suspect they're finally about to take off in a big way. The Smart company seems to be marketing aggressively to students, which is, well, smart. I envision dozens of these in the parking lots at York in another 5 or 10 years.
