Chevrolet has somewhat surprisingly just come forward with three designs for possible future micro-cars. Each of these vehicles (top right to bottom: The Groove. the Trax and the Beat) will undoubtedly be a gas sipper, as they are all terrifically small vehicles.
However, as the cars are designed for the American market, they don't look quite so small as they are. All three of the cars have substantial presence, and don't go the cutesy route of the Beetle or other small cars. The Groove and the Trax, specifically, bring an almost SUV-ish presence to high-mileage vehicles.
The only technical marvels here are the small independent electric motor mounted over the rear axel that gives the Groove it's inexpensive all-wheel-drive, and the Groove's high efficiency diesel motor.
But, since Chevrolet isn't really in a position to market all three of these cars, they're asking us, the public, to vote on which one we like the best. I know which one I'd most likely be seen in. Just so everyone knows, the Groove is currently holding on to first place.
