Do your bit for the enviroment
« on: March 05, 2006, 08:29:43 AM »
Any of you saving up for a Toyota Prius ::) will be interested to know that this Loremo concept might triple your karma points for half the price.

The German-designed carís super light chassis, tiny diesel engine and slippery shape give it a claimed fuel consumption of over 188mpg  :o Thatís roughly three times that of the electric-petrol hybrid Toyota, which theoretically achieves 65.7mpg.



What more could you want? Well there is a couple of negatives:

  • Loremo says weight was an important issue to achieving a high MPG.......To keep weight down, the car has no doors. The front two seats are accessed by hinging the whole front of the car up. Two rear-facing passengers climb in through the boot!
  • Loremo says that the lightweight chassis and aerodynamic body give the car a sporty feel.......... It has about the power of two 125cc scooters, gets you to sixty in 20 seconds.

Loremo have promised a much faster GT version of the car.........there goes the MPG then!  ::)

Hang on a mo! Wheres this going?

Coming from somebody with 7 cars on their drive and somebody who drinks petrol for breakfast, the words kettle, pot and black spring to mind.  ;)

This is an F1 website hardly the place to criticise fuel economy  :D

Anyway I only drink spring water, surely that counts for something?  ;D
