Slick 3-Wheel Roadster Gets 92 MPG

Combining advanced aerodynamics, a three-wheel design, and a new form of fuel delivery, the "Alé" (pronounced 'alay') boasts a major mileage edge over other performance vehicles - even most hybrids - getting up to 92 MPG (US). But don't worry about being laughed off the track; it runs 12's in the quarter mile, and with 1.7 G's of cornering force, it can out-maneuver even the most expensive Porsche, Lamborghini, or Ferrari.

Car Features:

  • 0-60 in under 5 seconds
  • 160 horsepower, 1.5 liter Honda engine
  • 12.9 second ¼ mile time
  • 1.7 G’s cornering performance
  • “Super-low” emissions rating
  • Honda CRX front suspension
  • Porsche 911 steering
  • 75%-80% less CO2 emissions than the average hybrid

Really, this is what cars should look like now; that it's been in development for over 15 years speaks to canadian viagra and healthcare this fact. A candidate for the multi-million dollar Automotive X-prize in the Alternative Class, maybe it will garner enough support to enter the mainstream if it wins. Or maybe someone will outrun rap/movie star Chris Brown (who just bought himself a 13 MPG Lambo) at a green light in an Alé and it will become "cool" to get better than 900 miles to a tank. It's available in BC, Canada in limited quantities now, and there are plans to go into full-scale production in 2012.

I could never see myself driving that car. Don't plan on taking more than a bag or two home from the store (which means I'd have to go to the store more often). Side impacts would be fatalities, and you better hope everyone is thin because I know several people that'd never be able to get into that! Judging from the way the canopy raises I'd suspect that many people would have trouble ing over the side and getting into it.

The stats are good. Now get those stats into a vehicle for the masses.
Not a Concern

I don't think a car with a 12.9 second quarter mile with a roll cage is exactly meant for going to the store. This is just a demonstration of how well an economical car can perform. It's a more "hey look what we can do", and not a "hey look at this practical day to day car".
I'd drive it to the store...

Thanks, Nick. Appreciate the help.


I would definitely drive this to the store... in fact, that's probably what it's best for: short, commuter trips where you're not hauling anything more than a briefcase and maybe a bag of dry cleaning. That's about 70% of the driving in the US, so there's a use for it... just not a large enough demand. Yet.

You could easily add a tow package to pull those one of those little trailers that motorcyclists put behind their hogs for long trips, for those trips to Home Depot or Ikea that require a little more space.

yeah, but

it's just a one-seater, right? i'll bet even a conventional gasoline one-seater gets better mileage than a four-door hybrid sedan.

It is so obvious that this is a Bede, a Litestar or a Pulse with some extra-weight body work and extra-weight 2 wheel front axle. The originals are cool.

It does kinda resemble a squid. A big red squid.
Still, It would be fun to out do a porsche @ 92 MPG.
This is a good, slightly wacky, start that will hopefully eventually become an amazing mainstream machine.

I don't care what any bad stuff people are saying of the car, cause i would love to own and drive one of these. It looks like a sports car and a jet in one. I sold my camaro cause it was a gas gustler, so one of these would be amazing. This offers you protection again rain and tramadol ultram buy the elements that motocycles doesn't offer. I would never give up my motorcycle completly, but if you got to dress nice and don't want to get hit by cold or rain than this car is better than a bike. No Helmet head.. I like this car more and more everytime i see it.
I'd buy it...

With a sub 20k price tag, I'd sign the papers right now. I drive 90 miles a day, with no passengers. Even a compact car is overkill for my needs.

An engineering tour de force, not meant as a production vehicle, but would suit most of us just fine...and if we were ALL riding around in something like this I would be willing to buy levitra australia bet there would be a lot more courteous (ie non a**wipe) drivers. And we'd have a LOT more fun driving! Except for the massive masses, who could maybe don this as a 1-foot skateboardy thing.

Doesn't Cousin It from the Adam's family drive one of these now?

Just kidding, it's not ugly, just unconventional. An exposed rear wheel woudl make it a little less goony in back and might aid in brake cooling.

Would it be classified as car or motorcycle in the US? Would it meet federal crash standards? If needed, would the extra weight of airbags and rear bumpers severely impact performance? How does it handle rain and snow compared to a 4 wheeler? Does it have any built in traction control to limit wheel spin or unintentional drifting?

Not that any of this matters to me, I'd drive on in any case, but it night matter with respect to market viability in the USA.
