Is this what the future looks like?

I hope so. California-based company Aptera has developed an electric car slated to be released to the the general public next year. Popular Mechanics has an informative video up on their blog. Watch it here I really like it, even if it does look like a sperm cell.

That is pretty rad. One thing that always comes up though, nobody, at least nobody I have heard from want to drive a space ship around. Why do the designs on all the new hybrid/electric cars have to call such attention to themselves.

Anyway, that was an awesome car.

Yeah, they address that. In order to achieve aerodynamics, the car has to look like a sperm cell... or something.

yea, its all about less drag. Look up with world land speed record on a bike and see what kinda of crazy sperm lookin rigs they are pedaling. sperm shape = 200 mpg they are apparently also making an electric combustion hybrid, which lets face it is more piratical if you want to do any type on long distance road tirp in the US

I guess I would have heard that had I not been watching the video at work with the volume down. Whoops.
