Shell's Concept City Car Gets 107 MPG And Fits In Tight Spots
The three seater concept car was built using materials with a low energy and CO2 footprint
Shell has unveiled a concept city car that can get up to 107 MPG and easily squeeze into tight parking spots. The three seater aims to prove the energy efficiency improvements that can be achieved using cutting-edge technology through a process of co-engineering where the vehicle body, engine design and lubricants are created together.
The car would use around half the energy required to build and run than a typical small family car and 69 percent less than that of a typical sports utility vehicle. Its gas consumption has been measured using a range of vehicle testing protocols, including both steady state and urban driving styles, with sample test results seeing a steady state consumption of 107 miles per gallon.
