USA: Corbin Tries To Resurrect Sparrow Electric Car. Would Anyone Care?

Back in the mid 1990s, a motorcycle seat salesman by the name of Mike Corbin turned up at the San Francisco Auto Show with a single seat, three wheeled electric car that resembled a boot on wheels.

But while Corbin experienced an initial spike of interest from curious consumers and international media, the firm failed to convince the world that the future of transportation lay in its brightly-colored bubble-gum cars.

With just 289 cars delivered, Corbin Motors filed for bankruptcy in 2003, but now the company is back, with plans to bring the Corbin Sparrow 2 to market by the end of the year.

Looking sleeker than the original Sparrow, the Sparrow 2 uses the same basic principle of a single-seat, three wheeled vehicle — or Private Transport Module as Corbin Motors calls it.
