The Vauxhall Flextreme Hits 125 MPH While Getting 175 MPG

Vauxhall wants to change the way you think about hybrid cars with their new Vauxhall Flextreme. The Flextreme is an awesome eco-car with some serious surprises.

The most surprising thing about the Vauxhall Flextreme is the fact that it shape-shifts at certain speeds. When the car goes above 30 MPH a vertical panel extends along the body and behind the wheels to make the car have more drag co-efficient.

The Vauxhall Flextreme is electric powered, even the wheels, with a small gas engine that is used to extend driving range. This all sounds good to me. Hopefully we see the Vauxhall Flextreme in the States soon.
