The $600 Dollar Car

The $600 Dollar Car

This is not a joke and they do sell for $600.00 they won't be able to make them fast enough--be good just to run around town.

Here's a car that will get you back and forth to work on the cheap.......
$600 for the car.
258 miles per gallon...
Only a one-seater, however
Talk about cheap transportation .......
Volkswagen's $600 car gets 258 mpg.

China launches $600 car that will get 258mpg

This $600 car is no toy and is ready to be released in China next year.

The single seater aero car totes VW (Volkswagen) branding.

Volkswagen did a lot of very highly protected testing of this car in Germany, but it was not announced until now where the car would make it's first appearance.

The car was introduced at the VW stockholders meeting as the most economical car in the world is presented.

The initial objective of the prototype was to prove that 1 liter of fuel could deliver 100 kilos of travel.


Spartan interior doesn't sacrifice safety

The aero design proved essential to getting the desired result. The body is 3.47 meters long and just 1.25 meters wide, and a little over a meter high. The prototype was made completely of carbon fiber and is not painted to save weight.

The power plant is a one cylinder diesel positioned ahead of the rear axle and combined with an automatic shift controlled by a knob in the interior.

Safety was not compromised as the impact and roll-over protection is comparable to the GT racing cars.



The Most Economic Car in the World will be on sale next year:

Better than Electric Car – 258 miles/gallon: IPO 2010 in Shanghai

This is a single seated car

From conception to production: 3 years and the company is headquartered in Hamburg , Germany ..

Will be selling for 4000 Yuan, equivalent to US $600..

Gas tank capacity = 1.7 gallons

Speed = 62 – 74.6 Miles/hour

Fuel efficiency = 258 miles/gallon

Travel distance with a full tank = 404 miles



Amazing!!

Can you get a confirmation on that price? I've seen several different variations on this, from $6,000 to $28,000 translated thru Euros.
Thanks

Can you verify that price? I've been trying to research this. I've seen prices listed from $600 to $28,000 translated thru Euros.
I've heard it called a 3 wheeler and the pic shows 4 whels. I've seen pics of it dated 2002 and in the caption it says they've been working on it for less than 3 years.
VW doesn't answer queries.
I'd buy a dozen in China and wholesale them for twice that price in Latin America.
Thanks

I don't think that China would let you export them. They are for the domestic market only.

No, it is not. The company is headquartered in Wolfsburg, Germany.
