Finnish Open Source Car project, "Electric Cars Now!"
"Electric Cars – Now! Is a collective venture, which will make electric cars affordable to everybody. The project’s key to success is to gain a critical mass of consumers who desire an electric car. Various professionals working within the project are offering their expertise as attorneys of the consumer, when terms of mass production are been negotiated.
In the first phase, the critical mass is specified as a combined purchase order of 500 cars. This number of orders brings the price of a family class car excactly to the same level as the price of a conventional car fitted with an Internal Combustion Engine(ICE)."
