A Car That Gets Over A Thousand Miles Per Gallon

Gas prices are high, that’s why this story caught my eye! The Cambridge Design Partnership just revealed a concept car that gets 1,325 miles to the gallon!

It was reveiled at the Millage Marathon Challenge in England, and they let an 11 year old girl take the car out for a test drive. Who knows, maybe this technology will be used in our vehicles in the future. Don’t get too excited yet, when you see the car you’ll think, “Hmm, where can I put my stuff?”

The vehicle was designed to promote engineering and technology and to educate school and college students about the benefits of eco-friendly vehicle concepts. Test driver Kitty Foster, 11, of Kings School, Ely said of the test drive, “When I told my parents how far this car could go on a gallon of fuel they were absolutely amazed! It wasn’t too hard. The Go system helped me use as little fuel as possible. It monitored the car’s performance, which helped us know when to stop the engine and start coasting.”

“The GPS information made a big difference and added 150 mpg. The whole car was great fun to drive. It’s good to see cars getting more environmentally friendly, and I’m really pleased we’ve done so well in the challenge’.
