The e-pod is extremely aerodynamic and light weight because of this it only needs a small electric motor and battery bank to go on the highway.
The E-Pod was designed to be the most aerodynamic production car ever made. This prevents you from wasting money when you drive and helps the environment.
The standard gas cars today have extremely high drag. They need to use a lot of energy (burn fuel) all the time to maintain their speed. The E-Pod body was design by Aerospace Engineer Alexander Cordes to reflect aerodynamic shapes in nature. The shapes of birds and fish allow them to travel quickly and use very little energy. The E-Pod resembles the shape of a air plane body which must be aerodynamic to function. We think its time we demanded the same efficiency from our cars.
