    At 150 mpg I would drive a a giant ketchup bottle, kinda sleek looking auto.

    It's interesting...

    0-60 in 16 seconds is a little extreme... and I would bet that it doesn't meet US safety standards with all that lightweight material.
    But it definately shows what can be done...

    It says that when it comes to America it will have a turbo option that will take it from 0-60 in 10 seconds ;D. I think it must be as safe as a motorcycle and those are legal so I don't know why this wouldn't be, and if it is those laws should be changed.

    I don't know if I would buy one but I imagine alot of people would.

    regular vehicle @ 30mpg over a 150,000miles = 5000 gallons @$3 a gallon(will go up before 150,000 miles)=$15,000.
    this thing @ 150mpg over 150,000miles = 1000 gallons @$3 a gallon = $3,000 total lifetime savings of $12,000. Not as much as I thought, but still significant.

    Definitely significant, but the effect will be even less pronounced in the US.
    The 0-60 in ten seconds model is a 3 cylinder, as compared to a 2-banger in the 150 mph model.
    I would assume that will bring the mph down below 100.
    Plus safety considerations for motorcycles are different that those of cars, particularly because there are different laws regarding who can operate cars vs motorcycles, and who can as passengers in cars versus motorcycles.

    You souldn't be allowed to drive you infant baby home from the hospital in one of those things.

    Exactly, this is a pipedream.
    Suburbans and such are much safer.
