Does a DIY EV named Pius sound familiar to anyone else?

Electric vehicle fans have been building their own do-it-yourself cars for years, and a Japanese company thinks it has just the thing to reach that market: a quirky little DIY EV kit. We’re not saying Modi chose “Pius” as the product name as a crass way to trick that audience, just that the name certainly reminds us of another, quite popular, green vehicle.

Modi Corporation, a Japan-based company making prototype vehicles, will begin offering the “micro compact car” Pius kit next spring. Range on a full charge is only expected to be a little over 15 miles, and it will only drive about 22 miles per hour at top speed, so you’d basically be building a neighborhood EV. Pricing for the mini-EV has yet to be announced.
