The green car of the future could be a giant egg on wheels

Making its debut at the Automotive Next Industry Fair in Tokyo, the egg-like ULV (Ultra Lightweight Vehicle), one-person electric car offers us a rather comical view of what sustainable city transportation may look like in the near future.

Developed by Waseda University's Nagata Laboratory, the vehicle has a 400 watt motor and can reach speeds of up to 40 miles per hour. According to the creators of the ULV, the car was designed to show us what a motorized vehicle design would look like if approached from a biker's low-carbon footprint point of view. You can see video of the ULV on display here.
