Manufacturers are jumping on the electric car bandwagon. How can an up and coming car company break away from the pack? If you're Yoshio Takaoka you add the clip-clop sounds of a horse.
The Girasol, Takaoka's two-seater collaboration with Italy's Start Lab SAP, runs completely on electricity -- for nearly 75 miles on a single charge. The sound of hooves were added to compensate for the car's quietness, to alert pedestrians to its presence.
If the car hits American shores, get ready for the initial purchasing rush of Monty Python fans. That is, if it isn't preceded by a car that says "Ni."
