Group Description

This web site is focused on the development of a simpler, less complex, efficient, and affordable automobile, with a target cost well under $5000.

And it is to meet most people's basic transportation needs - nothing fancy.

This forum is different in that we are actually a workgroup developing a car that we will build.

Our Prototype-1 has all aluminum tubing welded chassis and suspension linkage, a small engine coupled to a DC motor for power generation to charge batteries that supply 2 electric motors which also do some regenerative braking, 4-wheel disk brakes, and a very simple body. It can seat 4, 3 or 2 plus lots of storage space (as for delivery or maintenance applications), but it will definitely NOT be expensive and short on space like the "smart car" (or the 250mpg(1l/100km) VW-1 shown here). We have a modest goal of 100mpg initially... afterwards working on the design to move towards a 200 mpg hybrid.
