Loremo AG is a German company that is planning to bring a super fuel-efficient car on the market by 2009.
It has a two-cylinder diesel engine producing 20bhp, and weighs only 992 pounds (450kg). This, in combination with a very aerodynamic design, results in a 157 miles to the gallon fuel-efficiency (or 1,5 litre / 100km)!
Better yet, it will be widely available pretty soon at a very low price as well: less than €11,000 !
There will be two models available:
- Loremo LS
- 2-cyl turbo diesel, 15 kW / 20 bhp
- 0-100km/h in 20 sec.
- top speed: 160km/h
- 1,5l/100km (1300km with a full tank)
- price: €11,000
- Loremo GT
- 3-cyl turbo diesel, 36 kW / 50 bhp
- 0-100km/h in 9 sec.
- top speed: 220km/h
- 2,7l/100km (800km with a full tank)
- price: € 15,000
