Corbin Sparrow

for TheDon

Came in gasoline and plug-in electric versions. Corbin is one of the biggest suppliers of aftermarket motorcycle saddles and like accessories. Being a free thinker, he thought he would try his hand at environmentally friendly cars. The cars failed and I don't think they are any longer available.

In January 1996, Corbin Motors began work on developing an electric vehicle. The Sparrow passed final testing for Department of Transportation certification in April 1999. In September of that year, the Sparrow production line began manufacturing multiple vehicles in Hollister, California.

Fewer than 300 Sparrows were produced. Corbin Motors filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy on March 31, 2003, effectively killing the immediate future of the Corbin Sparrow. A bankruptcy court passed the Corbin assets to Ron Huch's company, Phoenix Environmental Motors, which tried to revive the Sparrow. On August 5, 2004, Ohio businessman Dana Myers bought the Sparrow interests from Ron Huch. The new company, Myers Motors of Tallmadge, Ohio, has upgraded the Sparrow, renamed it the MM NmG ("No more Gas"), and started selling it in April of 2006. As of June of 2008 the website lists a price of $29,995 without taxes or shipping.
