If some one is worried about the cars with conventional engines  to continuing to dominate with the world’s roads, that surely are not the oil companies. On the other hand, in front of the manufacturers before placing stricter environmental norms, it is imperative cars every year to reduce environmental pollution enviroment.Oil company Shell introduced the concept of a small city car with an economical petrol engine, which is used for transportation to three passengers. The vehicle is based on the model item 25, which in 2010 has engineered the company Gordon Murray Design.

Its body is made of recycled material of carbon fiber, so the car weighs only 550 kg. Despite the small mass, low power consumption is achieved by a low coefficient of air resistance (0.29).
