Below is a great video of Tom Hanks driving his converted all-electric Scion XB that we wrote about earlier this year. Hanks was one of the first people to jump on the conversion kit offered by AC propulsion and costing about $55,000. He has long been a promoter of the electric car — having appeared on Letterman to talk about GM’s ill-fated EV1, and cruising around town in a Toyota RAV 4 electric model. If you’ve ever been in a car with someone who continues to look at you more than the road, you’ll probably be able to relate to this video. Tom, please keep your eyes on the road! We would love to see Part II actually happen!
