eVaro - Future Hybrid Sportscar

The folks over at Future Vehicle Technologies (formerly known as FuelVapor Technologies) just completed the design on one of the world's first fully functioning, plug-in electric series hybrid vehicles. Aimed at radically changing the automotive industry as we know it, the 'eVaro' has been designed to produce no emissions for about 90% of the time it is on the road, and also to out-perform traditional petroleum based vehicles.
Verified results provided by the University of the Fraser Valley, in British Columbia, showed the eVaro achieving an average of less than 1 litre per 100 kilometers (0.86 to be more exact), or 275 Miles per gallon for leisurely 20-60kph city driving, and an average of 1.43 litres per 100 kilometres, (165 Mpg) on the open road.
The eVaro has a 135mph top speed (217 kilomteres per hour), with an acceleration speed of 0-60 in 5 seconds, and an unlimited range thanks to a custom on-board high voltage generator. All this sounds pretty impresive, but wait until you see what the car actually looks like. It really looks like something from a futuristic movie set, or a far-off concept car that might be developed somewhere in the year 2035. Actually, it's a reality right now.

About The Car:
The name is not just something that was grabbed out of thin air - although you may be forgiven for thinking so - the name is actually a reference as to how the car functions. 'eVaro' is short for 'electric vehicle with advanced regenerative braking onboard', and it is branded as a high performance sports car. The specs are pretty impressive: 122 mpge to 325 mpge - mpge stands for (miles per gallon equivalent), between 100-125 mile range, (160-201 kilometres) on electricity alone, an unlimited extended range with an onboard FVT gas generator as well as a 3 hour plug in at home re-charge time, or 1 hour with an FVT on board generator.
Judging by the performance, style and functionality, this car may very well be one to watch in the near future.
