THREE-WHEELING: The VentureOne is classified as a motorcycle, but still meets federal safety standards for cars.
Cruise around town in eco-friendly style. The VentureOne three-wheeled, two-passenger vehicle is a perfect fit for auto-obsessed greenies. Available as both a plug-in hybrid and all-electric car, the VentureOne features both speed and stability. Much like a motorcycle (which is what it’s officially classified as), the vehicle stays balanced by tilting as it turns a corner, but still meets federal safety standards for cars.
Clocking in at up to 100 miles per gallon, the VentureOne is far more fuel efficient than traditional vehicles, but still packs some heat: The electric model goes from zero to 60 in less than eight seconds, while the hybrid accomplishes the same speed in less than five seconds. These cruisers won’t break the bank either — vehicles range from $18,000 to $23,000. Buckle up and enjoy the ride.
