Hey now, I'm a fan of Coke Zero!

Personally, I think the name is appropriate - zero emissions, etc,
etc.  Of course, that sidesteps the whole issue of having a
significant amount of emissions  & nasty chemical processes involved
in manufacturing such a machine, as well as the after-the-sale
emissions from the power plants which eventually provide the juice for
"zero emissions".

I'm into electric-motor powered devices - R/C aircraft, robotics, etc.
 The instant-on power and full torque at idle is a bit intoxicating.
Surely youse guys have heard about the electric dragster  KillaCycle
and other more recent machines?  That monster rips off an easy
7-second quarter mile, in part to that massive amount of torque
available, even if it's only for a few seconds duration.

Like Charles sez... YMMV.  Or YILMV (Your Interest Level May Vary).
