Welcome to the future, courtesy of Honda. Introducing the Honda Reani, what may very well be the most important car released for the 2012 automobile year.

The Reani is a compact sports car, but the revolutionary aspect isnít the appearance, or any of the other outward features. Itís the fact that the 2012 Honda Reani gets, without the benefit of hybrid technology or even E fuel, to get 90 highway miles per hour.

The secret, according to Promotional director Edward Hughes, is in the small size and efficiency measures of the vehicle. Combining the new fuel economy technology with the more than affordable price assures that the Honda Reani will be a top seller for the year. More information can be found at the official website.

The Honda Reani will begin with a SRP of $23,499 fully loaded and a more basic version priced at $19,895. Both versions come equipped with the usual standards, Sirius radio, OnStar technology, remote starting feature, and self parking)

Is that with the optional hamster?

Yeah, because your GTi is so fast. Or was it TDI?

It was a joke, silly. It is a mistake in the article. It should be miles per gallon.

But, yes, my GTI is fast. I forget what the 0 to 60 is, but I think it's sub-7.

If my fat ass will fit in a car like that, might have to look at one for my daily commute, which is around 75 miles a day roundtrip.

This will shake up the market for the Volt which is more expensive and less efficient.

Hilarious that this car will get double the mileage of the Chevy Volt, and be half the price.

So what new technology does it use? "New fuel economy technology" is pretty vague. I have a hard time believing they came up with a way to magically double a car's fuel efficiency.

Also it lists OnStar as a feature which I'm pretty sure is only GM. The credibility of this article seems questionable.

I thought Reani was the Japanese model name for it, but CR-Z is also a hybrid. Upon further research, the only hit "Honda Reani" gets on google is a link to that article.

I don't even think there is a single vehicle that can generate 90 MPG.

Maybe in 2100.

Maybe they should install lethal tungsten carbide spikes on the car with reactive armor to help remind trucks to drive correctly.

The World’s Most Fuel Efficient Car: 285 MPG, Not A Hybrid (http://gas2.org/2008/03/12/the-worlds-most-fuel-efficient-car-285-mpg-not-a-hybrid/)

[UPDATE 9/15/09]: Volkswagen’s Diesel-Hybrid L1 Concept Gets 170 MPG, Available by 2013 (http://gas2.org/2009/09/14/volkswagens-diesel-hybrid-1l-concept-gets-170-mpg-available-by-2013/)
Welcome Google search visitors: This is just one of many articles produced here on a daily basis on Gas 2.0 (http://gas2.org/2008/03/12/). If you find this post interesting, sign up for our RSS feed (http://feeds.feedburner.com/gas2/org/) and stay up to date.
This is what a team of engineers can do when challenged to push the limits of fuel efficiency and technology. You may have already heard of VW’s 1-liter car, but take a closer look. It’s a sports-economy concept car produced a few years ago by VW engineers, to answer one big question: could they build a car that consumes less than 3 liters of fuel for every 100 km traveled?
It turns out they could, but they didn’t stop there. Instead, VW blew by that goal to create a car that uses only 1 liter of fuel for every 100 km. That’s 285 MPG.

To accomplish such a feat, VW’s engineers had to go back to the drawing board and start from scratch. They knew that fuel efficiency depends on aerodynamics and weight, so they created a bullet-shaped, ultra-lightweight (640 lbs) carbon-fiber car powered by a new, completely redesigned diesel engine. To save more weight, they didn’t even paint it:Proper aerodynamics were key to the low fuel consumption. VW engineers knew they needed a small frontal area. This led to its unusually narrow, bullet-shaped body where the passenger sits behind the driver. As well, the car features an aircraft-like canopy, enclosed rear wheels, special flat carbon-fibre front wheel covers, and an aerodynamic underpan. Even the side cooling air inlets only open when the engine needs cooling, and otherwise stay closed. . .the 1-Litre-Car has an amazingly low coefficient of drag of 0.16 (a typical car has a drag coefficient of approximately 0.30 ).

Everything in the car was made out of lightweight carbon-fiber or magnesium, gears were hollowed, and bolts were made from titanium. Like the electric Aptera Typ1 that I wrote about earlier (http://gas2.org/2008/03/12/apteras-26000-electric-car-and-300-mpg-hybrid-coming-soon/), the VW 1L was designed without side mirrors (too much drag), instead relying on internal video screens to guide the driver. And also like the Aptera, safety was of particular concern:Despite its small size and light weight, Volkswagen says the 1-Litre-Car is as safe as a GT sports car registered for racing. With the aid of computer crash simulations, the car was designed with built-in crash tubes, pressure sensors for airbag control, and front crumple zones. Its aluminum fuel tank is located in a protected area behind the passengers. As well, the 1-Litre-Car includes ABS and ESP (electronic stability program).
The existence of the VW 1-Liter car suggests the possibility of drastically reducing our vehicle fuel consumption without any major advances in technology. You probably won’t ever see the VW 1-Liter on the road, but don’t think something like this will never come to the market. You’ll see Aptera’s electric and plug-in hybrids (http://gas2.org/2008/03/12/apteras-26000-electric-car-and-300-mpg-hybrid-coming-soon/) within the next year, and they look like spaceships too.
