The World is Changing – The New American Muscle Car

High Mileage SUV  

The world is changing.  That’s not a suprise, but the fact that visionaries have been working on projects that will transport us half way across the country on the same amount of gas it takes for a 1 week’s commute is refreshing.  In my new year article “Everyone has a Prediction” I referenced an Aptera.  This remarkable 230+ mpg two-seater should be making its debut in late 2008. 

Today, I wake up to find to a press release from ASF Trinity Power Corp. about, “a medium-size family SUV designed to support a serious supermarket run or a family’s weekend recreational activities,” the XH-150 that sports a 150+ mpg.

The New American Muscle Car 

Today, Americans have turned the ingenuity that produced the American muscle cars of the 1960’s towards the American muscle cars of New Millineum, the high-mpg, high-performance (Got to get on that highway!), high-capacity automobiles.  This is the technology that we will be exporting over the next 10 years. 

Cool.  I salivate at the prospect of driving with such range and economy.  If any of these companies would like me to test their vehicles for a year I’d seriously consider it. I could guarantee it would go further than the 20,000 miles the average American drives. 

I have always thought that the idea vehicle should be able to go about 1000 miles on a single tank of gas.  Soon I might realize that dream. 

The world is changing and if these vehicles are any indication, the future looks very bright indeed.
