Sadly, much of the most dynamic innovation in cars is now happening outside the U.S. I’m captivated by this weird little cross between a bike and a car that promises 100 mpg and comes from south Wales. It’s the Naro car,
a four-wheel, two seater that the Naro Company hopes to start producing in 2008, according to the BBC. The passenger sits behind the driver, much like a motorcycle or bicycle-built-for-two. Naro Company is run by Hugh Kemp, a former product director of Lotus cars. If it doesn’t work as a vehicle for cities, it will probably fetch a nice price on Ebay as a collectable.
