Goodbye electric car

If you have grown fond of seeing this practical, cute, and non-polluting electric car around town, you are not alone. We all love our electric car, driven by our dedicated Community Services Officer, Cynthia Powell, on her rounds to check on parking situations and other public safety assignments. The car was given to us to use by Nissan and is a prototype. Nissan is taking these cars back from the towns in Marin that they were loaned to and will not let us keep them (we tried to buy it from them but they won't let us). We are looking to replace our electric car with another right-hand drive electric vehicle that CSO Powell can use, but so far have not been able to find one comparable to this Nissan. If you know of any suitable vehicles, please pass along the information to us. We have to give this car back next week.
