Tom Hanks touts his E-Box

This video is from a year ago, but it shows how stoked Tom Hanks is with his E-Box electric car. It's essentially a Scion with a battery in place of an engine. Seems to have pretty good specs with a minimum 100 mpc (miles per charge) and all the comforts of a good ol' car.

Tom talked about it more with Dave Letterman back in 2007 (Video). Here's a press release with all the specs on the E-Box. The only real down side for most of us is the near $80,000 price tag. Ouch! Of course the more that sell to celebs at high dollar help to make them affordable in the future for people like me. You go Tom!
