If you are the type of person who prefers to drive alone, then you're going to dig the Solo concept car. Solo is a single-seat pod-car designed for those who want a visually stunning vehicle that gets 100 mpg.

The Solo concept car was designed by William Engwer. Engwer's design is powered by a hybrid gas-electric engine and features a body made of glass, carbon and aramid fibers. Solo is small compared to other vehicles on the road today, so Engwer created an advanced crash management system for it. The great thing about the Solo concept car is that it can be assembled anywhere. Solo kits can be shipped across the world and assembled without the use of complex machinery.
