The Naro Car is a slim vehicle that operates a bit like a motorcycle, with a banking action to prevent it from tipping over. The car is designed for city use as a personal commuter, a taxi or a delivery vehicle. It is intended to return over 100 miles per gallon from a 4-valve gasoline engine (too bad it's not an electric vehicle). The Naro will be on display next week at the AFVI (Alternative Fuel Vehicle Institute) show in Anaheim, California.
The Naro was built in Wales by The Narrow Car Company. The company hopes to start production by 2008. It predicts 1,500 vehicles will be produced each year and will be sold for about £5,200 each.
