VentureOne, Concept Hybrid Car with 100 MPG and 100 MPH Capabilities.

That's an artist rendering of VentureOne, a plug-in hybrid vehicle designed to achieve 100 miles per gallon with top speed of over 100 mph! Link

Venture Vehicles, the company behind the car, will be at the Cool Product Expo, a Stanford University event that showcase new and innovative products. If you're in the area, the Expo is on April 11, 2007 12-5pm at the Arrillaga Alumni Center, Stanford University. Attendance is completely free.

David Abramson of the Stanford Graduate School of Business, the lead organizer of the event, said that notable products will include Tesla's Roadster, Aliph's Jawbone Bluetooth Headset, Linden Lab's Second Life, Lexus' self-parking LS460 and NeuroSky's brainwave reader.

Awesome stuff! For more info on the Stanford Cool Product Expo, see: Link - Thanks David!


Very similar to a number of 3-wheel motorcycle concepts.
Even GM made a great one similar to this that banks while the two rear wheels stay flat:

Never got produced because they are lawsuit machines. Lawyers would be lined up ready to sue the pants off the manufacturers for producing "unsafe vehicles".

(would still love to have one...)

The above 3wheeler.com is a great site to see similar concepts..

No trunk space, my son would have to cram into the floorboard, and I'd have to have half my weight surgically removed and my skeleton dramatically altered, just to be a passenger.

Why is the future always so darn UNCOMFORTABLE?!

No thanks, I choose to live through minor collisions. That thing would explode in anything over 1mph crashes. BTW, where is that lady's legs? Maybe she lost them in a previous crash in that type of car? Wondering minds want to know. ;-)

This is just a recycling of the carver, renamed and redesigned, I think its the same company although I can't be sure. Anyway, this concept has been around since 2003, if not sooner. Check it out-> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carver_%28automobile%29

How many people really think that owning a hybrid car will help the environment ? I mean look at all these hybrids here http://www.topgreencars.com/ would owning one really save a tree ?
