A few weeks ago a few Norwegians set out to solve the problem of electric cars being too silent, to some entertaining results - think train horns.

Now one member of that group, Calle from Ylves (yes, of "What Does The Fox Say" fame) is doing all the things you probably shouldn't do in his Buddy electric car - like giving everyone driving petrol cars the finger from the HOV lane.

For those of you not familiar with the "Buddy" EV, it has a range of 25-60 km  (16 to 37 miles) via a 13 kW motor, and has a max speed of 80 km/hr (50 mph).  Total longth? 96 inches.

The Buddy has been in production (more or less) since 1991 and is in its 6th generation - apparently most of the 1,000+ cars made so far have been for comedy sketches.
