Spokane’s Tango featured on cover of TechBriefs magazine

Spokane's best-known, homegrown electric car, the Tango, is the featured photo on the cover of TechBriefs magazine's October issue.

Developed by Rick Woodbury of Commuter Cars Corp., the Tango is a two-seat electric car that has wowed green consumers worldwide. Woodbury has sold Tangos to actor George Clooney, and to Google co-founders Sergey Brin and Larry Page.

The article at TechBriefs focuses on how design is driven by consumer demand, and how design software plays a key part in developing sustainable vehicles.

The Tango's design was enhanced by Dassault Systems, a Concord, Mass., company that has developed CAD tools under the brand name of SolidWorks Sustainability.

If you care to see Clooney next to the Tango that he bought back several years ago, here's the link.
