The Miluira is a vintage-styled Japanese hybrid vehicle that runs on lead-acid batteries.

Japanese company Takayanagi is launching an interesting retro-styled one-seater electric car called the Miluira. Taking design inspiration from the vintage cars of the 1920's, the open-top Miluira is powered by an engine that runs on lead-acid batteries, which even though makes it unfeasible for driving it at high speeds and long distances, gives the vehicle a higher surge that's required to start it. It is capable of traveling 22 miles on a single 12-hour charge.

The car will hit the market next year and could be yours for $75,000. Not very practical, but will still turn heads when you take it out for a spin.
