Some co-workers brought up the idea of creating an electric pusher-trailer to take the load off a gas-powered car… you know, incase you wanted a hybrid but couldn’t afford a Prius… or maybe you just can’t give up your Ferrari, but the gas bills are starting to get to you.

Anyway, I was curious if anyone else had ever thought of this, so I did some digging. It turns out no one has ever built an electric pusher, but the concept of pushing a car with a trailer is “nothing new”: , except that usually its an electric car being pushed by a gas trailer.

“Here”: are a few “examples”: .

I did “find”: two electric pusher “trailers”: for bicycles however.
