Many of you will have heard of, and seen videos, of the amazing Dutch vehicle, the Carver {link}. With its motorcycle-like handling and performance, but car-like safety, the carcycle was seen by many as the answer for future transportation. On top of all the environmental things, it's just pure fun {link} !!!!

Today, we see the birth of the VentureOne. VentureOne is a car/motorcycle/trike, based on the Carver technology, designed with help of BMW DesignWorks and produced/marketed in the USA.

VentureOne Mileage


VentureOne models
VentureOne will be available in three different models, 2 hybrid versions and 1 fully electrical.

With fuel consumption of 100 mpg, speeds exeeding 100 mph and some 6 seconds for 0-60 mph, the VentureOne looks really promising. (D)riving range is 300-350 miles for the hybrids, and 120 miles for the electric version.

Factor in a reasonable price (around US$ 20.000 - down from other hybrid models ranging in the 50's), this vehicle may just see a commercial success.

With today's gas price rising into the stratosphere, with pollution norms gaining stricter levels never attained before, a transportation device that pollutes very little, uses less gasoline and looks really cool is not too much to ask.

VentureOne motorcycle tilting
Driving (or riding) this contraption is very much like riding a motorcycle. It's like riding a big Honda Goldwing, with a Hayabusa engine and a Ducati styling.

Check the BBC video of the original Carver {link}, and you'll see it's really the feel (and fun) of a motorcycle. But since you're in a cage, you have the added safety (and comfort) or a car.

Looks like a winner to me. Where do I sign up? Will you trade in my BMW ?
