China’s “NEW” Little Car

LET’S SEE…
CHEVY VOLT FOR $40,000.00, OR CHINA VW FOR $600.00?
HMMMM…YOU BE THE JUDGE.

China’s new little car aka “The Highway Suppository”.

This is not a joke and they do sell for $600.00. They won’t be able to make them fast enough–good just to run around town.
Here’s a car that will get you back and forth to work on the cheap…$600 for the car. 258 miles per gallon.

Only a one-seater, however – talk about cheap transportation….
Volkswagen’s $600 car gets 258 mpg.

It looks like Ford, Chrysler and GM missed the boat…..again!

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 its first appearance.

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

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

Better than the Electric Car – 258 miles/gallon: IPO 2010 in Shanghai. This is a single-seat 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

  1. Reblogged this on Damn the Matrix and commented:
    I can’t help wondering what the future holds for machines like this…… it’s still personal transport, it still emits CO2 in its manufacture (and the ratio of manufacture to driving emissions is far higher than in the case of building a conventional car, seeing its remarkable fuel consumption). I think we should be saving all the fossil fuels we have now left to build low amounts of renewables for the future, not private transport…… what do you think?

  2. I would buy one immediately. I have always maintained that a single cyl. Diesel engine could achieve amazing results. Who wouldnt want to hyper-mile to work on the cheap? Keep my fun car for the weekends!

    • …and if you could use alternative fuel, that would also save you money…I agree that fun vehicles should only be used for the weekend or vacations….this car for ‘only’ work would be a great idea and I would buy one as well…..maybe then I could afford to go on vacation
