NEWPORT BEACH — Every morning, Randy Poulson boards a scooter and drives from Newport Shores to his workplace in Balboa. The scooter has a motor, but it makes only minimal noise — no more than a regular bicycle as the driver glides over boardwalks and across city streets.Then, at the end of the day, Poulson plugs it back into the wall socket.
That’s the beauty of building an electric car.
