The InEco Concept car from Germany's TU Dresden Institute of Lightweight Engineering and Polymer Technology kind of looks like the Hyundai Veloster from the front and the VW Scirocco from the rear.
The concept is a battery powered, sporty looking compact sized model using innovative carbon fiber reinforced plastic steel hybrid composites. It has a curb weight of just 900kg, including its lithium-ion battery pack.
Power comes from the 90kW electric motor, which is good enough for a 0-100km/h sprint in 7.5 seconds and a top speed of 160km/h. The batteries are said to offer a driving range of up to 140 kilometers (87 miles), depending on the conditions.
It will be making its debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show.
