Hey! VW's getting into the motorcycle business! I guess it's a German thing. The original one took about three liters to go 100 kilometers and had a 10hp motor. The original one was very inexpensive and ordinary people could easily buy one. This original example below was made in the 1950's. The concept has gone from helping the lower classes gain personal transportation freedom to the upper classes entertainment.
I am also a fan of the Carver. I love the idea of an enclosed motorcycle that can be used in all weather and is much safer. My biggest concern is getting hit from behind. On a motorcycle you are in for a whole lot of pain. The Aptera is also cool but I like this design much better. This also takes the lighter and more aerodynamic concept to the maximum. A plug-in or full BEV version would be quite a marvel. To any automakers that are reading this. Yes please!
I wonder how a fiberglass version of this car would perform. Basically a poor man's version. Might still get well over 100 mpg. Hey VW, can you allow someone to copy your molds so we can get a kit car version of this? A simple tubular frame and EnerDel battery pack...
