Whether you live in San Francisco, or you're just coming her for a visit, let's face it, traffic is bad, and parking is the worst. But, not for me because I am in the [UNKNOWN]. That's right, I'm having my soup and my sourdough bread bowl at the same time, because I am able to get along in this all electric get about Town. I can park easy. And when I'm done I will give it back because it's a rental baby. [MUSIC] So what this is is a rebadged Renault Twizzie. It's coming from Nissan as a new mobility concept and it is being leased at Scoot quad here in San Francisco. I've got a top speed of 45 miles an hour which man, sometimes I wish it were faster. A range of 40 miles. It takes three and a half hours to charge. And you can charge it via a regular wall outlet. Although, it is compatible with the super high flux capacitor charging that you use for your tesla and whatnot. So, upfront [UNKNOWN] i've got coil over shocks. Can you believe it? And teeny tiny control arms. It's the funniest thing I've never seen, but what's great is that it parks super easy and the turning radius is amazing. I've got 17 walking horse power and 42 amazing pounds of torque. That's right, it's small, but it [UNKNOWN] just fine. So, while my speed is governed to 25 miles an hour, I'm on a road right that the speed limit is 30 miles an hour and people are passing me. [UNKNOWN] There's nothing really I can do about it so you are limited to your feed and that might make you feel like you're going dangerously slow. Maybe it's just that these people are going dangerously fast. [SOUND] Now, as you'll see here, there is no window so be sure to wear your jacket, but check it out. Going doors, it's super Miami Vice. [MUSIC] This is a two-person vehicle, so let me, so I guess I'm not wearing a skirt in this because [LAUGH] it's [UNKNOWN] Feel my legs. Super comfortable. So you will notice there is no key. You turn this guy on and off from the app, alright? So the beeping says it's all connecting. So I turn this This little knob here to one position I wait for my display to turn on I take off my handbrake I go to the Q I put this baby in drive and I'm good to go. 'Course you got some safety features here I've got an airbag in the front, I've got a four point harness in the front seat because it's a race car, right? Plus a three point harness in the back I got disk brakes on all four wheels and those thirteen inch wheels are wrapped in continental Conti contact tires. So if you're coming to San Francisco, you can rent one of these babies. $80 for the full day, and $40 for the night. [MUSIC]
