EcoRunner VII Lightweight Vehicle Gets Over 8,000 Miles Per Gallon


Electric cars and fuel efficient vehicles are all the rage as people become more environmentally conscious and try to reduce their carbon footprints. A group of students from the Delft Technical University in the Netherlands unveiled the EcoRunner 7, an electric vehicle with a fuel efficiency equivalent of 8,200 miles per gallon. The students plan to prove the fuel efficiency of the EcoRunner 7 by driving from the Dutch capital Amsterdam to Cairo, the capital of Egypt! The newest version of the EcoRunner comes with some significant upgrades. By making the body completely out of carbon fiber, the team have brought the weight of the EcoRunner 7 down to less than 22 pounds. The ultra efficient vehicle runs on a small electric motor located underneath the driver in the back. Team Delft is due to participate in the world championship of fuel economy, the Shell Eco-marathon in London, this coming May.

  • 2016 Cadillac ELR Has More Performance, More Range, Lower Price

    The specifications of the updated 2016 Cadillac ELR range-extended electric car were released this morning, and one big question has been answered. The luxury coupe will not use the revised Voltec powertrain that propels the new second-generation 2016 Chevrolet Volt on sale later this year. But it boasts better performance, slightly higher electric range, more standard equipment, and a price cut of $10,000. Instead, the 2016 ELR will continue with its existing 17.1-kilowatt-hour battery pack and 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine. Nonetheless, it gets a notable boost in powertrain output, which has risen to 233 horsepower and 373 pound-feet of torque from the 207 hp and 295 lb-ft of the 2014 ELR.
