CITICAR

The CitiCar was a small electric vehicle, first produced in United States in 1974 by a company Sebring-Vanguard partly in response to the mid-1970s fuel crisis. The CitiCar was a tiny golf cart sized car that could go at a top speed of about 39 mile per hour.  At about 4,300 C-Car variants produced, it still holds the record for most road-legal electric cars made in automobile history.

The electric part is great but I think the comic relief this car provides is the best! Ha ha!

My junior year in Industrial Design at the University of Illinois, we had a semester project to do a redesign based on the CitiCar's underpinnings. My version was just a restyle, but one of my classmates did a total rework of the concept, with plug-in front and rear battery/drivetrain/suspension modules for quick refuel stops. He went on to a lifelong career in design at GM after school (I didn't)
