Super cheap cars of the future – The single seat VW

By | October 28, 2009

I have a thing for budget cars of the future, and although this piece of news is a bit old, I bet not many have heard of it. Take a peek at the new single seat Volkswagen (VW). This car is planned for the China market, and as far as I know, this will be the cheapest car in the world when it is released (slated next year).

Similar to the Tata Nano, but MUCH cheaper, this single seater car boasts of 258 miles to the gallon with a tank capacity of 1.7 gallons. This means a car can run for about 440 miles or 708 kilometers on a full tank. Not bad.

It runs at speeds of 62-74 miles per hour, or about 100-120 km/hour, which is also decent. All that for a projected price of $600 (the Nano currently costs about $2100). It is cheap enough to buy it in China, and then bring it back with you to your own country if you can’t get it anywhere else.

Yup, this car is real.

Not much else is known about this car, as Volkswagen has been keeping news of this car hushed up till today, but I’d be looking forward to when it does come out, and if this trend of super cheap cars gains more mainstream acceptance, than hey, that can only be a good thing. The only downside to this car, is you can’t take it to go out on a date with someone else, plus you wouldn’t want to bump it into anything!
