Yeah, I was reading up on this. Zero to 43mph takes 14 seconds.

I completely understand that going fast is not this thing's mission at all, but that seems so slow it's unsafe.

Have you seen how many people they can fit on motorcycles in that country? A slow car would definitely be an improvement.

And the surrounding sheet metal won't make them feel a little safer therefor spawning more risky behavior to those around them? It happens here, why not there?
