Shell unveils the Project M concept car in collaboration with Geo Technology and Gordon Murray Design in Beijing, China. The high-efficiency petrol-burning vehicle claimed it will use a third less energy in its lifetime than a typical city car and around half the energy to build and run than a typical small family car.
All of this is reported to result in an optimal fuel consumption of 89.1 mpg US (2.64 l/100 km) at a steady 70 km/h (45 mph).
The 3-seater car is powered by three cylinder 660-cc petrol engine, whose components were also selected to help reduce friction. The engine produces 43 horsepower engine with a top speed of 156 km/h (97 mph) and acceleration from 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 15.8 secs. Watch the video below.
