Those Little GEMs
Here’s a fun Friday treat for you - the Russian government has ordered 30 of the cutest little GEM e4 no-emission vehicles to shuttle world leaders around while they’re in St. Petersburg for the upcoming G8 summit.
The carts are made by DaimlerChrysler’s Global Electric Motorcar and may look familiar because they were also seen serving the same function at the 2004 G8 Summit in Georgia.
These little guys can reach a maximum speed of 25 miles per hour and can last up to 30 miles between charges. The base sticker price of the GEM e4 is (ouch) $8,995.
