RE: MIT's radical proposal for an ultra-compact, foldable electric vehicle
The comment by AlanLaRue is a good illustration of the difficulty of changing mindsets. We think of cars as something we own rather than something we rent to meet the needs of the moment. Still, the MIT idea has merit as a component of a mass transit system that services a city core. There's lots of places where the commute from suburbs to the city core is quite bad & parking is expensive, but it's impractical to place enough rail stops within short walking distance of all locations within the core.
