Electric/Hybrid Motorbike/Car

Initially only available in California, this vehicle called the Aptera (meaning wingless flight in Greek) is a two and a bit seater electric or hybrid three-wheeled enclosed motorcycle.

A prototype with a parallel hybrid diesel boasted an average of 230 MPG
(1.02 Litres per 100K). But because of emissions restrictions, the
hybrid model will use a small water-cooled EFI gasoline engine with
closed loop oxygen feedback and catalytic converter.
