The Zoleco is a homemade eco-car that looks more like it belongs in the garage of George Jetson than Canadian DIYer Zoltan Bod. Bod's unique car is designed to be as fuel-efficient as possible, with an amazing fuel rating of 151.1 mpg.

The Zoleco has been designed to cut, drag and weight, allowing it to nimbly slice through the air. Unlike most eco-cars with strange shapes, Zoleco is actually designed to be comfortable for its occupants and can seat four. The Zoleco's lightweight body and unique design require very little engine power to propel the car. Bod estimates that a mere 8.2 horsepower would be enough to sustain the car at 65 mph. Bod is planning on further developing his eco-car with possible plans to sell home-build kits. Stats for George Jetson Concept Cars Trending: Older & Buzzing
