    Wow! That is great news. It will be interesting if they can make a whole fleet of those in electric. I'm not so sure if the cost benefit would be too much different for changing over from gasoline to electric. Changing over to the electric has got to be expensive, but in the long run in terms of gasoline consumption it should work out.

        Maybe they were just testing the electric cars that are supposed to be on HKDL's Autopia.

            Thats what I was thinking...but since now a days they've gotten quite good at making multiples of things at once maybe they are making a second fleet.

            But wait...where are these electric cars getting thier power? I was under the impression they were going to pull thier power from the track, is the power from elsewhere? If not how did they get the DL track to run a current to test this car?

                Yeah, the picture came out too dark! But you could tell that the head rests were different and there was a stripe on the side. It was covered up a bit, but you could tell it was new and shiny!!

There are just things that you need to talk to other women with. You may have the best relationship in the world with your husband, but there are just times you need your girlfriends. It makes for a healthier and happier you which makes everything else you do better.

                  I think it might be regentative like the honda cars out now? just a guess, but if Chevron pulled out, it would be nice to get E.V's in there, gross fumes! =oP Plus it would influance a whole generation to electric vechicles. And i love the new Honda buddy buddy system with Disneyland, 2 great companys.

                    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
                    And I can tell you 'bout today
                    And how I picked you up and everything changed
                    It was pain
                    Sunny days and rain
                    I knew you'd feel the same things...

                          Unless I am mistaken Chevron has a contract with Disneyland for a few more years, after Disney created a massive gasoline spill underneath the current loading platform. If you look around the planters in the queing area you can see pipes coming out of the earth and fumes rising from them, meaning they are still burning off gasoline residue.

                          Chevron kept the spill hush hush in return for a juicy long term contract and the forced commercial in the roundabout tower as you enter the queue.

                          Therefore I would believe in hybreds of somesort, but completly indepently powered electric vehicles- I will wait and reserve judgement until I hear from Al or a press release.

                            This would be a nice update for Autopia seeing how electric cars would seem more futuristic rather than smelly diesel or gas ones.

                              I like that idea for electric. I would make that area much more futuristic. I have to say though, that I have read that the put-put sound is a positive with kids. I don't know if that went away that it would hurt the attraction. (Of course the easy solution is to add imitation sound to the cars. With some car frum-frum, I think that the kids would like it.)

                              There is one more problem. Electric usually has to be charged. If they don't go for battery operated, then exposed electrical line has to be put on the track. That potentially could be a hazard. That is probably why they are testing it.
