A car alternative

I heard a story today that apparently Henry Ford's wife used to drive an electric, but the electricity grid wasn't developed back then to make it a viable technology. It is now!

I am exploring ways of reducing the use of our car out here at the ecovillage - to move both people and things around. I ride my bike whenever I can, but there's times I need more space.

I came across this 6 seater golf cart which could be retrofitted with solar panels on it's roof to generate all the power in needs for local trips...seriously considering pursuing this. If I need more charge than this, I can plug it into my existing solar system at home.

Any other ideas?

I'm looking at getting a plug-in solar electric golf buggy for family use, workshops, education and giving tours of the ecovillage.
