Inhabitat » Transportation Tuesday: MIT’s Stackable City Car

High gasoline prices bring innovation, as expected. From simple solutions (bicycle sharing in Paris) to more sophisticated ones (MIT electric stackable cars). Aren't economic incentives the way to solve a problem? Oh yes. And we all gain, due to positive externalities.
