The Aptera electric car is a three-wheeled electric car, but its unique quality to other electric cars it that it has a drag coefficient of 0.11 which means it is extremely slippery.

The Aptera gets 230mpg while driving at 55mph, and its makers claim it can go from 0 to 60 in just 10 seconds. The company has already demonstrated the first working prototype of this diesel-electric car, and they said that their first production vehicle will be out in 12 months.
