If you haven't heard they are now taking pre orders for the Aptera car that supposedly gets 230mpg.
I would consider buying it if they were cheaper but since they are saying $30k for it now I really don't think id buy it. But if it was under 20k it would be a very tempting car to buy and be stuck having to work for another few years making car payments. Still it would be cool if someone on here got one and blew all of our mileage numbers away with it.
well if i had 30k and i didnt have hills in my area, and seeing other people with small cars around me (no huge trucks to run me over) it would cool to have. Cept i cant learn anything else about it because i cant manage their website!!
It LOOKS great, but only time will tell if it ends up truly being great. Even at 30k, I would definitely buy one if, and only if, it is ablet o perform at over 200mpg. Anything less than that and the thrill factor would fizzle out for me. Even at 230mpg, it is still going to take a while to offset the upfront cost.
If they can pull this off, you can bet that I will eventually be getting one.
As outrageous as the idea of a 1L/100km car sounds, more reports have emerged confirming the ultra-frugal car is in fact in development and that it could be on the market by as early as 2010. At last month?s Frankfurt Motor Show senior VW exec Ferdinand Pi?ch claimed the car would be available by the end of the decade and now CEO Martin Winterkorn has backed up the claim as well as providing some of the production details.
First up Winterkorn stressed that the 1-Liter ?would not be a best seller? and thus will only be produced in limited numbers. Its body will be constructed from plastic and magnesium and its power source will be a one-cylinder engine displacing just 0.3L. Top speed will be 120km/h and consumption will fall around the 1L/100km mark (235mpg), reports AFX.
I'm wondering how far under 35,000 Euros the MSRP will be.
The new computer animation has it looking pretty sleek. Still pretty phallic, but at least it's spiced up.
