Spokane-developed electric car catches Leno’s eye

Fri., Dec. 4, 2009, 12:26 p.m.

Spokane car designer Rick Woodbury recently spent time with car aficionado Jay Leno at the entertainer’s garage in Burbank, Calif.

There Leno recorded a video showcasing the sporty electric-powered Tango, developed and produced by Woodbury’s company, Commuter Cars.

The six-minute video shows Leno talking about battery power, the Tango’s impressive speed and the car’s appeal to “lane-splitters.” Incidentally, the car in this video was sold by Woodbury to Sergey Brin, one of the founders of Google. The Tango costs about $140,000.

Watch the video.
