  Original Published: 8/1/2013 A revolutionary electric car that could make parking a breeze has been unveiled in New Zealand. It's a joint project with engineers in China, and the first car of its type in the world. Parallel parking is many motorists' worst nightmare. So imagine having a car that could do this. The technology makes it unique. It's the world's first electric car to have a motor on each wheel. The car can hit 60 miles per hour, and with a good battery could run about town for a month at a time. The car is expected to sell for about ten thousand dollars, not including the battery. It won't be commercially available for at least two more years, but it's got the motoring world "in a spin."
