Two wheels in the front one in the back, this car is nothing if not unusual. Its vapor fuel system is ultra efficient and produces 30% less CO2. FuelVapor Technologies plan to enter the Alé in the Automotive X-Prize for the most fuel efficient production car.

Implications - To get into the details, the Alé contains a turbocharged 1.5-liter engine producing 180bhp. The design of the vehicle is geared towards being light and aerodynamic, which helps with the speed. What sets it apart is that instead of four-wheels, this car has three, but that doesn't sacrifice its performance. To make the Alé even more appealing, it's also a low-emissions vehicle that runs on fuel vapor instead of the usual liquid fuel.

With a cutting-edge design and an environmentally friendly function, the Alé should be a big hit among consumers.
