Volkswagen's $600 car gets 258 mpg -- It looks like Ford, Chrysler and GM missed the boat again!

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

China launches $600 car that will get 258 mpg

This $600 car is no toy and is ready to be released in China next year.

The single seater aero car totes VW (Volkswagen) branding.

Volkswagen did a lot of very highly protected testing of this car in Germany, but it was not announced until now where the car would make it's first appearance.

The car was introduced at the VW stockholders meeting as the most economical car in the world is presented.

The initial objective of the prototype was to prove that 1 liter of fuel could deliver 100 kilos of travel.




Spartan interior doesn't sacrifice safety

The aero design proved essential to getting the desired result. The body is 3.47 meters long and just 1.25 meters wide, and a little over a meter high. The prototype was made completely of carbon fiber and is not painted to save weight.

The power plant is a one cylinder diesel positioned ahead of the rear axle and combined with an automatic shift controlled by a knob in the interior..

Safety was not compromised as the impact and roll-over protection is comparable to the GT racing cars.




$600 car gets 258 mpg

The Most Economic Car in the World will be on sale next year:

Better than Electric Car – 258 milees/gallon: IPO 2010 in Shanghai

This is a single seated car

From conception to production: 3 years and the company is headquartered in Hamburg , Germany ..

Will be selling for 4000 yuan, equivalent to US$ 600..

Gas tank capacity = 1.7 gallons

Speed = 62 – 74.6 Miles/hour

Fuel efficiency = 258 miles/gallon

Travel distance with a full tank = 404 miles

I like the idea behind it and could see the benefits of it here in the US. That being said, there is no way that car will ever hold a $600 price tag or be able to boast those amazing performance numbers here due to US requirements. In order to be sold legally here, I would imagine many things would have to be added to comply with our safety requirements. With the price of that, the cost of importing it, and whatever other taxes we can tack on to it, it will end up being out of half of the US populations affordability. Wonderful concept though.
