Antro Electric Car

 

 

The car of the future, now coming from: Hungary. Yes, it sounds like communist propaganda circa 1967, but the Hungarian designer Antro might just have made a superefficient, supercheap car that could put Western manufacturers to shame. The Antro Solo can hold up to three people a driver and two passengers, one on either side who pedal to help drive the ultralight car. The rest of the forward motion comes from an electric motor that's partly powered by solar panels. If you need a bigger car, Antro has a solution: two Solos can be combined, Transformers-style, to create the family-friendly Duo. Look for it in 2012.

-          A Hungarian company called Antro is developing an electric car that can split into two separate smaller cars, and it intends to have the cars on sale by 2012.
The Antro Solo is a three passenger car, and it features a hybrid drive and solar cells located on its roof, which according to Antro will generate enough electricity for the car to cover 20km per day.
What makes this electric car unique is that it can connect to another Antro Solo car to form one vehicle which is capable of carrying six passengers, thus making it more energy efficient for the six people to travel in one vehicle.
