Gayer than Fossy’s Gay Ute

Fossy’s gay ute is pretty gay…but this is way gayer:

The world’s first electric limousine has hit the road in North America – but not in tech-savvy California or downtown New York, but Nashville Tennessee.

A luxury hotel chain in the city known for country music and a laidback lifestyle is claiming to have commissioned the world’s first fully-electric road-legal limo.

Built by a conversion company in Missouri, the Nissan Leaf’s electric power pack and batteries remain intact – but the 200kg of extra metal, glass and leather added to the middle of the car has blunted driving range.

In ideal conditions a regular Nissan Leaf electric hatch can travel 160km between recharges, but the extra weight of the limousine – and its eight occupants, including the driver – would likely cut that in half.

However, the hotel says driving range is not an issue because most journeys are less than 8km.
