They’ve already tested the design in prototype form, and placed in the top 30 at the worldwide X Prize car competition, CBC News reported.
Next, the team is heading to the SEMA Show in Las Vegas to hopefully find some investors.
They didn’t only focus on efficiency though. They want to build cars that look good too.
“Cars are very emotional, you know, especially for a guy. We only buy cars that girls want to get into,” one of the team members said to CBC.
The three-wheeled car would cost $30,000-50,000 when it goes on sale, although a spokesman said the first prototype costs millions to make. They plan to finish the first complete car by spring and have 10 pre-production cars completed in the next three years.
