I heard about it last year I believe, $30k was the price I heard, for sale only in Cali.

The commuter version (300mpg) is enclosed.

If you were rich? $30k?

True. I wouldn't want to get into a wreck in one. But for 300 mpg you could drive across the country on 10 gallons of fuel.

It would be the most efficient "toy" you've ever had.

OK, OK... I this one works. Screw the mileage...

Wonder how it can get 300 mpg on a 50 mpg motorcycle engine?

Probably that electrical motor that's helping out although I think you're combining cars's atributes.

Ahhh.

The T-Rex was on Discovery or TLC a few months ago. Kinda neat, but pretty much useless for me.

The T-Rex is a different animal than the Aptera that gets 300mpg.

My mistake. The Aptera gets the 300mpg. It basically runs all electric, the only thing the gas engine is for is recharging.
