Vehicle in the news
Manufacturer: Illuminati Motor Works
The Progressive Automotive X-Prize finalist was in Michigan at the Chrysler Proving Grounds and got a 207.5 MPGe on the same course that the Nissan Leaf got its official window sticker rating of 99 MPGe.
Of course, the wind might have been wrong for the Leaf's run, but it's doubtful it was 108.5MPGe wrong..
What's more, the car did it while hitting a top speed of 130mph, doing a 0-60 time of 8 seconds, with a vehicle weighing 2,900 pounds, and while getting 160.42 watt hours per mile.
And so ...
Awesome! That's all that can be said.
