200 MPG Series Hybrid Velozzi

A concept car being developed under the name Velozzi looks like it might be a more awesome, though less practical version of the Volt. It's an ultra-light-weight two seater with a top speed of around 200 mph, and a top efficiency of around 200 mpg.

The car will be powered by some form of lithium ion battery, though it doesn't look like they've gotten as far as figuring out what battery that might be. The batteries will be charged by an on-board micro-turbine engine. This extremely efficient engine looks like it'll be able to run on any fuel except maybe wood and canadian levitra plutonium, so no worries for bio-fuel enthusiasts there.

What it lacks in practicality, it makes up for in style, and though the discount cialis india micro-tubrbine and composite body won't come cheap, it looks like a smaller sleeker alternative to the Tesla.

Materials
written by Jay, June 30, 2007
Ok how do they figure this won't be cheaper? The parts used are more common than Steel or metal parts, so how do they figure this will cost more? Technology is supposed to mean, less time, less energy and to make life EASIER, not more expensive. Plastic parts, Cardboard, not sure how they figure this will be more expensive, they aren't using steel or metals that take longer to get, or manufacture for. I think they get experts that aren't really experts just good BS'ers to cialis online for canadian convince people they must pay more for materials that are easier to obtain. Fortunately for them most people are idiots and just accept that they are probably making a killing off the sale of the so called "More expensive Hybrid Alternatives". I'll keep polluting the air happily if they continue to want to gouge the market.

I have to agree with Jay, above. So many $-hungry market gougers are out there making people belive plastic and cardboard are as valuable as steel and metal, that I will stick with my non-green polluter, even though I would rather not! I just hate $-grubbing capitalistic, greedy gougers-----we have enough of them already; and I refuse to contribute to http://www.revistadeteatro.com/viagra-samples their lining of their golden pockets!!!!!!! This car looks realllllly cool, though. Too bad no one really cares enough about the earth and women viagra the environment to make a product available that is desirable and the viagra online no prescription average working person can hope to afford. As long as exorbitant prices prevail and greed rules the market, the environment will continue to disintegrate and the earth will remain polluted. As this process continues, we will all suffer as we all have a human body and our health is NOT guarranteed; so, all the profit in the world will not do a scrap of good in the pocket of a dead man!!!!!!!!!

Batteries?
written by Deborah, June 30, 2007
The bigger picture here is what will we do with all these batteries once they are used up? if the loonies get they're way we all will be driveing these "hybrids" and millions of batteries? OH thats right the states will charge a large "disposal fee" another fat cat will make factories to re-build them and get fatter all the while WE PAY! Ok I know WE ALWAYS GET IT IN THE REAR END!

comment on "materials?"
written by Kevin Bandy, June 30, 2007
i'm pretty sure that they aren't just going to use plastic and cardboard for their real car, it might include plastic and cardboard but i think the majority will be carbonfiber which is extremely expensive. i mean if the car was going to be made of tramadol fedex overnight delivery just plastic and cardboard that would be neglecting the crash tests its gotta go through.

The big expense is the lithium battery. There is a new one that recharges in 10 minutes, but no price.
With epoxy you can use wood, card board, or any porous stiff material for construction. A low density wood gives an excellent strength to weight ratio. See West system epoxy. They aren't the only ones, just what I remember now.

Gee, all this talk of cardboard makes me think a bag of oats for a horse, and a wooden wagon to carry the family on would be cheaper. Just watch out for the horse exhaust, you might slip in it.

Missing the point
written by Chris, August 06, 2007
I think a lot of people are missing the point here. This is a car that the www.expert-nett.fr environmently/economicly concious people can feel good about. Let's face it money motivates. Everyone has a right to indian generic viagra profit, at least in this country. However as a major proponenet of the environment we need to look at other countries whose citizens absorb the cost of going green because its the right thing to do. New Zealand or Iceland for example are >90% green. Their citizens lack the satiracal, cynical and condesending attitudes, that keep Americans from moving forward. Bold I know, but if we TRULY reflect, correct.

I shall wait for the Tesla Roadster - all electric and pfizer cialis 50mg the ZAP-X SUV again all electric. Both cars are run on engines developed by Lotus and use suspension also developed by Lotus. The roafster has an average distance of 250 miles between 10 minute charges and the ZAP-X has a range of levitra and diarrhea 350 miles between 10 minute charges. Perhaps these cars can not compete on a race track (the Tesla does 0-100 in under 4 seconds but has a top speed of around 175 mph while the ZAP-X has a top speed of 155 miles an hour) either of these cars haa a combined horsepower on the electric engines of 640 bhp - 160 each wheel. Best thing is that there are so few (about 4) moving parts per engine. Now that is efficiency! So where am I going to drive a Ferrari at 200 miles an hour other than a track? So why do I need that much speed muscle? It sure isn't going to increase my manhood!

Cardboard and Plastic!
written by gensler, August 06, 2007
Heeelllllllloooooo idiots bitching about the cost of cardboard and plastic......so you save a few bucks on the body BUT do you think the "some form of lithium ion battery" and the "on-board micro-turbine engine" grows on trees? Remember, something inside the cardboard box makes this thing move at 200 MPH. :o

Dear materials....et al. There is a saying " it is better to be silent and thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt" Plain a simple fact is that you don't have the internet pharmacy propecia faintest idea what you are talking about. Jusy because the article said that it was made of plastic, carbon fiber, and cardboard doesnt mean these materials were picked up at the local dump. Materials that can bear weight and www.barefootfoundation.com the forces of a 200mph car while at the same time being extremely light are much much more expensive to develop, engineer, shape, etc. Thats the problem with all you tree huggers. You sit around licking frogs and don't know how the real world works. I am a chemist specializing in Rheology or flow dynamics of materials, so I actually understand how these materials would be much more expensive. Everybody wants to have the best technology but then they whine and moan because the engineers that worked on it for years to only here levitra non prescription develop that technology would like to be paid. Wha wha wha!

Cardboard and Plastic
written by Steven B., August 06, 2007
I agree with you gensier, something in that cardboard box is pushing it at 200 mph. The question I have to wonder is what idiot would want to go 200 mph in a cardboard box? Can we bury that idiot in a card board box as well?

Process/Tooling Engineer
written by Ken C., August 06, 2007
I have to agree with Heith. Not only do these materials have to be lightweight, they must be durable enough to handle the stress generated by the powertrain without falling apart. Additionally, there are minimum safety standards that must be maintained by the vehicle or you can't put it on the market.
Heith talked about new material development being costly. Initial vehicles would be produced almost by hand, which is extremely costly due to the skill level required of the individuals involved. Once the buy online purchase viagra expensive prototypes are made and prove to be successful, you can start talking about mass production which could eventually bring costs per unit out of the stratosphere.
Lastly, we're talking about a 200 mph sports car here. WAKE UP, those will never be cheap. Only the technologies developed in this endeavor can be used in a vehicle that would be reasonbly priced and make sense to put on the road for most users.

As far as burying "that idiot" in a cardboard box...for anyone who's truely eco-friendly...they should want buried in a cardboard box. If we actually bury people in cardboard boxes, or better yet, in no box, the bacteria in the soil can degrade the body back into essential nutrients that plants need to live. If plants and trees are growing betterm they will produce more oxygen!! and guess what kills the ozone layer, the high ratio of www.aldentheatre.org CO2 to O2..so plant yourself in the ground without a box, let the plants use you for food, and help replenish the ozone layer.

Now as far as these cars go...heith and Kevin are right... these cars will probably be mostly carbon fiber because it is extremely strong yet extremely light, but very expensive.

Also, why would anyone want to pay super high prices to have a car that does 200 mph if you can't drive it more than 70 ish without having to www.ncitech.co.uk worry about getting pulled over for speeding?!?! Unless you're going to drive this car on the track.

Also, I keep seeing all this dissing America on these blogs because America won't go green, well, let me tell you something, Americans won't go green for a bunch of reasons...

1) a lot of Americans work for minimum wage or very close to it, and can't afford to spend the kind of money that the car companies want for their green cars, and the ones that do have the money to spend on a brand new off the lot, paid-in-full ferrari or porche or some other >$100,000 car...most don't give a damn about the enviro, or they just bought the cheap 25mg cialis car for a status symbol, and actually drive their greener car on a normal day.

2) Most electric cars can't go the distance that most Americans have to travel just to get to work at their jobs that pay $20-$30 an hour. So Americans HAVE to have a car that has gas backup. For those of you who live in the UK, you need to come spend a few years in America so you understand. Most European countries have at least decent public transportation systems because the countries are so small that public transportation can work. The only places public transportation works in the US is right inside the cities. And as far as walking or riding a bicycle, a lot of areas in the US are plagued by hills and overnight levitra valleys and mountains, especially the metropolitan northeast. Sure it's a pretty place to live, but it's definitely not anywhere I'd want to ride my bicycle everyday! Also, UK dwellers don't realize how hot and humid a place can get. If I rode my bicycle to http://meivending.com/buy-cialis-without-prescription work everyday, I'd be really really stinky til I got to work. No one wants to work with a person who's all sweaty and stinky in a convenience store! It might be different if I worked in a factory with little or not air movement and we all smelled like that within an hour or two, but I don't...I HAVE to be well-kept at work, and that includes body odor as well! How would you like to ride your bike to work in near 100 degree Farenheit temperatures with over 80% humidity?!?!

There are a lot of other reasons, but I'm absolutely positive I can't think of them all. But before everyone starts dissing America for not going green, think of what America lacks that is absolutely necessary to go green...esp. public transportation!

Also, sometimes you have to stop bitching about the price, and just get what you can afford, regardless of the fuel efficiency.

Enough about card board and plastic...I can almost guaranty that the majority of the cardboard used will NOT be load bearing as well as the plastic... designing these materials to withstand the forces exerted by a 200mph vehicle is expensive...So I'm pretty sure that the manufacturers will use a more durable material...lets say "carbon fiber"...for exterior and load bearing components to keep their cost down so they can rape us even harder in the end!

Seems to me you can claim any numbers (200mpg/ph) you want on your concept car if you just add that statement that says we havent figured out what battery to non prescription viagra use. Heck, i have a concept for a perpetual motion machine. i just need the right battery...

Carbon fiber ISN'T enviromentally friendly, and it ISN'T cheap... part of low cost levitra the reason is that it's hard to make. The other part is that if you make "it" out of carbon fiber, it'll be hard (read: expensive)to get products liability insurance. Without products liability coverage, your company will be sued by the first whiner that busts your product (probably by exceeding design parameters). SO cutting-edge technology will be expensive, even if the products used to make it are cheap as dirt.
Also, if it's limited-production, it'll be mas dinero. Remember the Chrysler PT Cruiser? They brought well over $20k when they first came out. Now they're giving them away for under $12k; they were a commodity, and now they're priced like a high-school graduation gift.
A plastic-and-cardboard Ferarri? Even if it were powered by D-cells, a 200MPH Prancing Pony will cost. Period. 200 MPG? What would Ed Bagley, Jr pay?
