I was driving to San Francisco to visit my girlfriend's family
when I so an orange skinny car on the road. I had to drive closer to
investigate. And to my surprise this is what I saw.
After further research I learned that this could be the world's slimmest
car and that this car retails for $150,000. This is the tango electric car.

Only about 15% of the energy from the fuel you put in your tank gets used
to move your car down the road or run useful accessories, such as air
conditioning. The rest of the energy is lost to engine and driveline
inefficiencies and idling. Therefore, the potential to improve fuel
efficiency with advanced technologies is enormous. With an Electric Car it
costs just $2.00 per 100kms with MUCH more performance than with petrol at
$20.00 per 100kms.
