Here is a clever design from the Technical University of Berlin that they cleverly named CLEVER. CLEVER stands for Compact Low Emissions Vehicle for Urban Transport (wait...that spells CLEVUT. Not so clever!). This TRON-esque 3 wheeled wonder is about 10 ft long, 3.3 ft wide and 4.4 feet high and weighs 870lbs. It's single cylinder 230cc compressed natural gas engine is capable of going 62 mph with a range of about 125 miles all the while emitting less than 60 g/km of CO2 (the Toyota Prius does 104 g/km).
The CLEVER is a result of collaboration between TUB, BMW and several other automotive innovators to design a lightweight, low consumption, low emissions urban driving vehicle. While they have a working prototype there is no word about when or if this will come to market. .
