    Palestinian electrical engineer Fayez Anan (L) stands near an electric car in Gaza May 20, 2008. A Palestinian-designed electric car drew admiring stares on Tuesday from Gazans forced to use cooking oil to power their cars because of a fuel shortage. Anan and fellow electrical engineer Wasim al-Khuzundar, hooked up an engine to 32 batteries. Driving their small car through the streets of Gaza City, they said the vehicle could travel up to 200 km (120 miles) on a single charge. REUTERS/Mohammed Salem (GAZA)

    Fayez Anan says it only costs $1.50 per fill-up and conversion of a old Peugeot $ 2.500

    While worldwide millions are poured into the development of a reasonable plain vanilla EV for Joe SixPack - still no one is in sight - a poor Palestinians delivers out of a garbage can a decently drivable EV car.

    The Peugeot may be not exactly a jaw dropper - but it drives- and if the report is true (the CSM is not exactly Foxnews) not bad at all.

    Probably we / Israel / Tesla should consider a "change" ®Obama - and pay for once a friendly visit in the Gaza strip?

    PS: the Independent runs the same story
