The CLEVER Project. Yet Another Funky Urban Transportation Project. Are any of these things ever ack-tually going to appear on the streets?

 The natural gas engine allows travelling with minimal fuel consumption (2.5 l/100km (111 mpg) equivalent to gasoline for CO2 emissions of 60g/km)…Because of the lack of appropriate infrastructure with natural gas filling stations, the refuelling of CLEVER is possible by the exchange of gas bottles. Two mounted gas bottles offer a driving range of approximately 150 km.


  • Yawn, just a new version of http://www.carver.nl/home.htm

  • Hmm, yes and no. The Carver only gives 40+ mpg vs 110+ with this?

  • People will only use these if they get bigger. I mean, why have a car-type-vehicle if its only a one or two seater? People like the idea of cars with 4+ seats. "Want a lift? Ok, just stand on the back and hold on to the roof…" erm… no.

  • But DM, most people make journeys on their own, or with a max of two people in the car. Family outings during the week appear to be an exception rather than rule.

  • Looks and sounds great, except for the cost…. estimated £6,500 . Why bother when you can get a small car (safer, faster, more comfortable, more room) for the same or less?

  • One word – 111 mpg. OK, two words. :-)
