Aptera super fuel efficient vehicle
From Greenlivingpedia, a wiki on green living, building and energy
California-based Aptera is building an innovative and inexpensive super fuel-efficient Typ-1 electric vehicle. A video test drive and design overview is available at the Popular Mechanics website. The goal is for the vehicle to travel 200km on a single lithium-phosphate pack charge for 2008.
According to the designers, the drag coefficient of his two-seater Typ-1e is a mere 0.15, about the same as the sideview mirror on a conventional car. Compare that to 0.26 for the Toyota Prius or more than 0.40 for today’s SUVs.
Two models are planned:
- all electric, with a range of 150 to 200km
- an advanced hybrid getting 100km per litre (300 mpg), planned for 2009
