The ULTIMATE (Eco) Chick-Mobile!

xr3-3

The second I saw this shot on the gas 2.0 page, I knew I wanted one! This has to be the coolest car ever! This is what I want for Christmas (or before, if possible, LOL).

The XR3 is a three-wheeled plug-in diesel hybrid, getting 225 mpg, or if you’re cruising on diesel alone, about 125 mpg.

From the original article by my friend and eco-car enthusiast, Jerry James Stone:

Introduced back in June of 2008, the two-passenger car was designed so it can be assembled using readily available parts. Fully constructed, the car weighs in at 1480 pounds and has top speed of 80mph. And while you can only get 40 miles out of its li-ion battery pack, it can be plugged into any standard wall socket.

  1. Hi, I like your article about this car. However, after mention of it being able to be recharged via a standard wall socket got me thinking. Doesn’t that cost quite a bit on the electricity bill? Doesit still come out cheaper than gas in comparison?
    Thanks alot and keep up this great site.

  2. I love this design. Where can I get one? The most i do for green living in terms of transport so far is to clean my car with a waterless car wash

  3. Is this Alien spacecraft for Alien Grace Baine who lands on Cartoon Network this fall with Ryan Kelley, Alyssa Diaz, Galadriel Stinemen, Nathan Keyes and Barry Corbin? no this is her Eco Friendly hybrid wish for xmas to zoom around town http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1140761/

  4. I think that the designer was a fan of aliens.

  5. For miranda: The electricity bill for a ekectric car is not very high, depending on the usage of course but on average it’s about $1 to $2 a day.
    Indeed a great design.
