Modi-Corp, a Japanese firm, has revealed its “Pius” build-it-yourself single-seat micro electric vehicle (EV).

The company expects that the Pius will be used as an educational tool to learn the basic functions and structure of an EV. They plan to sell it to universities, technology colleges, and car mechanics’ schools.

Modi also offers a service of embedding components in the vehicle so customers can use the vehicle to evaluate the components. Scheduled release: around spring of 2013. No word on price or release in the U.S.
