Hasbro -

Somebody posted this elsewhere on Ecomodder, but maybe it didn't get it's own thread. Ironically, my coworker *also* showed me this today (she knows my penchant for MPG), so I guess it's getting a lot of play.

Now that they've done a $170K concept, they need to do a "UMC analysis" (Unit Manufacturing Cost) to see how much this little puppy could cost in production.

Aww, how cute, it even looks like a little car. I'm sure it's fuel-efficient at its top speed of 15-20mph, but can it climb a hill or survive a pothole?

Don't get me wrong, it's incredibly efficient, but it's not a car.

Not a general purpose automobile, no. It's more a research test-bed or prototype. Still, these things need to exist before the theories and components can be refined and distilled into something more practical. Not every idea will be a winner, but sometimes you just have to throw the bowl of spaghetti at the wall and see what sticks.

I would just love to build something like this. I have one on paper that is similar in chassis structure and would weigh about 800 lbs. Would make a great little round about town car. And with some small slicks a cheap track days toy.
