What is a Hypercar Vehicle?

Description: 

A Hypercar® vehicle is designed to capture the synergies of: ultralight construction; low-drag design; hybrid-electric drive; and, efficient accessories to achieve 3 to 5-fold improvement in fuel economy, equal or better performance, safety, amenity and affordability, compared to today's vehicles.

The Hypercar® is a design by the Rocky Mountain Institute which relies on a highly aerodynamic vehicle body, advanced composite materials, and an efficient hybrid-electric drive train. In many ways the Honda Insight is an example of a Hypercar.
