OMG!

I have just put my name down on the 'buy' section to express interest!. Imagine the MPG you would get, if you hypermiled it! Also imagine the range extension of even a simple EV addition to it

Pretty sweet. Will never make it to the states though. Thats just way to slow. It's 75mph speedlimit in AZ and most do 80 you would get run over lol.

Very nice concept. Good numbers both for FE and for purchase price. The GT model goes for just under $20K USD, which I would gladly pay that for a car that gets that kind of mileage out of the box.

i don't think this thing is exactly slow... the LS is no hotrod but still has a topspeed of 99mph that's more than you can legaly drive over here the GT does even better... this would be an ideal car for driving to work every day and occasional highway traffic... the GT would make a very affordable but usable roadster.

i like the philosophy behind this car... unlike big car manifacturrers showing of with halfhearted hybrid of ev concepts, these people take conventional technology and try to get the most out of it.

i think the cars of the future won't come from big car manifacturers... the real innovation will come from small daring companies.... of course by the time these vehicles will really start to threathen the established brands they'll suddenly "invent" competing models and try to put the newcommers out of business.

Very nice car! Imagine the looks you'd get driving that around town. What's with the big space under the front bumper though?

"What's with the big space under the front bumper though?"

The lower sides on the front bumper look like they are designed to reduce drag on the front tires. The open area in the front bumper looks like it would direct any air below the licence plate under the car. Looking at the picture with the "hood/door" up the angle mirrors the transition at the rear of the car. As long as the car runs out of speed before it runs out of downforce it should be a good change. Anyone have any ideas what the large cowl between the hood and front window is for? It looks to big for rain collection. The large angle between the hood and front windshield also seems pointless seeing as how it is all one unit anyway.

the cars structure and chassis are going to produce a natural flat underside. so it's basically i big duct from the front to the back... i remember someone here was thinking about ducting high pressure air from the front to the rear to reduce the wake... this might be just that...
the chassis seems to be pretty clean and jugeing from the front and rear views it would seem like the car is actually quite high above the ground but looks lower because of the integrated sideskits. the rear defuser has something that looks a lot like a spoiler too.

one thing i can't see is the windshield wiper... so i suppose that's what the cowl might be for... most cars seem to have this these days, although the prototype doesn't seem to have anything at all in the spot.

this car has a lot in common with the opel eco speedster wich i've just discovered has a single wiper blade that's oddly parked vertical in the center of the windshield. interestingly this picture shows the loremo with the same arrangement... also the mirrors seem to be arranged more like the eco speedster.might be an early design stage or speculative sketch though... overall shape is different too...

I forgot who said it, but here's a quote:

"Small cars mean small profit."

Theres no way that this car will meet the latest USEPA smoke and NOx emissions regulations, so there is no chance it will come to the USA.

The Loremo could come to America if it uses modern gas engine technology. A one cylinder, long stroke, four valve VVT engine with direct fuel injection displacing 400 - 500 cc would make about 40 HP, and it would smoke the Loremo's puny and heavy diesel engines. And get about the same mileage as the diesels.

Any of the major automakers could provide such engine technology to Loremo. I'm certain they won't. See the quote above.

Only highway with the right gearing. City for most would still be somewhat gasoline like, not that it's as bad as normal, probably better than an Insight.
