If you're an American (unless your name is Ed Begley, Jr.), chances are you're still a little skeptical about the electric car. I get that. We were raised to admire gigantic, powerful, smoke-belching machines, which explains why my otherwise eminently reasonable father drove a Suburban larger than my bedroom for most of my childhood. But in Europe, where streets are smaller and their regular gas prices would make Newt Gingrich poop his pants, they've already embraced the electric car as a clean, economical and practical way to navigate a city. All of which brings us to yesterday's Paris launch party at L'Atelier Renault for the Renault Twizy, featuring new brand ambassadors David Guetta and Cathy Guetta.
