DETROIT -- GEM, a division of DiamlerChrysler, is showing off it's e2 neighborhood vehicle in the basement of Cobo Center at the 2007 NAIAS. The automobile is perfect for industrial complexes, construction sites, college campuses, hotels, resorts and marinas.

The e2 can hold two passengers. It has a maximum speed of 25 miles with a range of 30 miles. It comes with a lead acid battery that takes about six hours to recharge. It is also manufactured with disc brakes. There are zero emissions because it is a truly electric vehicle.

This is not meant to be your first car. However, it can be a second or third car. It's just a little car that you can use to transport items to and from small areas. You can drive it down neighborhood streets but it is not mean for the highway or surface streets.

All of the windows in the vehicle are made of safety glass. It will help to protect you in a dangerous place such as a construction site. It is the same material that is used in safety glasses that protect your eyes.

The e2 also comes with three point safety belts. There are front and rear turn signals, headlights, taillights and a horn. It comes with most of the standard features you would elect on an automobile. However, there is one drawback -- no AC. There is heat but no air conditioning, sorry.

This automobile can be charged by plugging a cord into your standard 110-volt outlet. The e2 receives over 200 mpg and consumes 120 watt hours per mile. It is twelve times more efficient than your standard car.

There are approximately 33,000 GEM vehicles on the road right now. They are available at any Dodge, Chrysler or Jeep dealer. The starting price is $6,795 for the base model of the e2.
