Ford Motor Co. showed off its first electrically-powered prototype at a US senior players golf championship tournament this week, according to Associated Press (14/7/00).

The tall-roofed `Th!nk Neighbor`, the brainchild of Ford`s `Th!nk` division, is one of new breed of eco-friendly vehicles capable of short trips at less than 25 mph.

To go on sale next January, the vehicle will have a starting off price of around $6,000 with two option packages costing around $500.
