1000mpg car True and real


aptera.com

An asymptotic decaying exponential is an accurate way to describe the fuel mileage of the Typ-1h. For example driving say, 50 miles, one might calculate a MPG number that\'s 2 or 3 times higher, say, 1000 MPG. As battery energy is depleted, the frequency of the engine duty cycle is increased. More fuel is used. at 75 miles, the MPG might be closer to 400 MPG. Again, we\'re using battery energy mostly, but turning the engine on more and more. Just over 100 miles we\'re just over 300 MPG, and just beyond 120 miles, we\'re around 300 MPG.

So why pick a number at 120 miles? Well, it\'s more than double of most available plug-in hybrid ranges that achieve over 100 MPG. It\'s three times the distance of the typical American daily commute. It\'s a meaningful distance that represents the driving needs of 99% of Americans on a daily basis. Sure, it\'s asymptotic, after 350-400 miles it eventually plummets to around 130 MPG at highway speeds where it will stay all day until you plug it back in and charge it up.

This is the epitome of future auto\'s. The hybrid car is schedualed to come out in 2010 and the electric version (gas free) is ready now. It maxes out at 65-70 mph and looks kind of like George jetsons dream machine. This is one serious auto prices at 27K for those that can afford it. The hybrid is even more impressive. Currently the electric version has a range of 120 miles plus with only a few hours charge, not to mention that it has 360 degree views from onboard camera and a touch screen computer that comes stock with GPS and has solar powered climate control. Only $500 down can reserve you very own aptera today.

Oi! Now if they would make one that was cheap and not so UGLY, I would be all over it!

I agree with Bis....

I think its great that these guys are doing all of this research and coming out with 1000 mpg gallon cars. But how about making a regular 4 door sedan that doesn't look like a UFO. Use the knowledge of this car to make one that gets around 150 mpg and looks normal.
