Lightning Hybrids

I found these pictures of a futuristic amphibious car that adjusts its wheels for driving on land, ice or water. Following up on it, I found Lightning Hybrids an automotive research and development company that is designing two high fuel economy models, the tricycle LH3 and the normal quad wheelbase LH4. This company is an example of the future that Detroit should have taken.

The LH4 will get 100 miles per gallon. That is 1.00 GPHM or 1 gallon per hundred miles. Read this website to learn about why GPHM is better than using MPG for fuel economy numbers. It is a sporty little number, able to go 0 to 60 in 5.9 seconds. There is room to seat four people. The price tag will be in the $40,000 to $60,000 range, so they are not exactly what you would call cheap. According to the plan, they will be on sale in 2010.
