The Clever Car is in a class of motorized vehicles known as ’tilting three wheelers, which have been around since 1886. Although the concept is nothing entirely new, the team at Clever is developing an amazing, compact version mainly for urban use. The vehicle has the ability to carry two passengers, giving it very little mass resulting in very low consumption and therefore very low emissions. Housing a 230 cc one-cylinder compressed natural gas (CNG) engine complete with natural gas tank system that can be refilled at normal natural gas filling stations or even supermarkets. The replacement gas tanks weigh just under 15 lbs allowing for easy handling and easy refilling. You can also store additional tanks at home so you wouldn’t have to drive to a refilling point when on empty. Climbing from zero to 60 mph in less than 7 seconds The Clever will allow you to zip around town and finish your weekly errands.
