Eli spotted this auto a mile away.  The kids got good taste, eh?  It was parked on the Champs Elysee, in Paris.

While browsing the shops on the Champs Elysee we spotted a Renault store.  Eli had a ball looking at the prototypes, learning about gas emissions, and playing a driving game (just let me say that I'm glad he's not on the road now, :-)

We both loved the round seats!

So cool!

I liked the blue headlights.

AND, it's electric!!

Another kind of "GREEN!"

Check out this cool station "Quick Drop" where your used battery is removed from your car (the yellow one) and a new, fully charged battery is inserted to replace your used one.  Ingenious!  No more relying on gas companies.  BRING IT ON, I SAY!

I can only tell you that this is a motor. If you have any knowledge about this to add, please leave a comment.  I would love to know more about it.

Did I tell you how strong Eli is?

Thank goodness 11 year-olds are not driving.  We didn't survive the first minute.  I love you sweetie, but you have a lot of practicing to do, :-)

Eli was impressed that this car had an X Box player--whatever for, I don't have a clue.

Even I (who knows nothing about cars) can appreciate this Peugeot.

I can tell that Eli was very impressed with the Peugeot ~~better start saving your nickles and dimes.

More information about lowering the CO2

Toyota's answer.

An excited and enlightened Eli, but also an exhausted one after auto shopping with his Mimi.
