The 330 mpg Aptera Concept Vehicle. Yeah right. Hot on the heels of a supposed expose of the reason why GM really shelved its EV-1 electric car, what we need is yet another pie in the sky, three wheeler, futuristic, space age, hog wash concept car that will do a zillion miles on a gallon of gas. Am I sounding a tad cynical here? What we really need is a major manufacturer to stop pussy-footing around and produce a family car in volume that does over 100+ mpg, with a 100+ mile range, 75+ mph max and 5 hour recharge time. Is that a lot to ask? Oh, and at a reasonable man in the street price.
And no, I don’t believe that companies like Tesla are relevant to the story either, with their high end sports models. That’s an easy, low volume, low hanging fruit game.
