Shoe car

The Kang Shoe company in China have built a shoe shaped electric car. The shell is 3m long and approx 1m high and is made entirely of real leather, (i.e. the hide of five bulls). The bodywork was made in the same way as a normal shoe but on a much bigger scale. The car battery is located beneath the driver's seat. The vehicle carries two people a distance of 400km at speeds of up to 30km/h on a single charge of the battery. At the launch workers queued up for the chance to drive the car at a demonstration outside the company's headquarters in Wenzhou in eastern China's Zhejiang Province. Plans are afoot (love it) to make 40 other cars for stores around the country.
