Yes, it’s a car. Not a trike. But it could be, and soon somebody (I hope so) is going to match its incredible performance. And don’t think it’s just another concept vehicle to please your eyes and your intellectual curiosity. It is a newly developed single seat car in highly aerodynamic tear-shape road-proven real car. It is ready to be launched as a single-seater for sale in Shanghai in 2010 for a mere RMB 4,000 (US$600)!
Interested? Wait till you learn that it will cruise at 100-120 kmh (about 74 mph) with an unbelievable 258 miles per gallon! Gas tank capacity is 1.7 gallons with a travel distance with a full tank of 404 miles. The Most Economic Car in the World will be on sale next year. From conception to production: 3 years and the company is headquartered in Hamburg, Germany (see VW logo on the hood). American manufacturers, stand up! (Thanks Alan Charlap).
