High school students from DeLaSalle Education Center pose with their zero-emission electric car

We came across an item about a new 300 MPG car design and were reminded of the famous Groucho Marx joke from the movie Duck Soup:

“Why, a four year old child could understand this!”

“(Then) run out and find me a four year old child, I can’t make head or tail out of it!”

It turns out that the latest high-mileage, zero-emission vehicle not only gets 300 MPG–an impressive feat–but wasn’t designed by the engineering students or industry experts in Japan, Detroit or Germany.

The high school students from the DeLaSalle Education Center in Kansas City, Missouri who conceived of and delivered the 300 MPG electric car have even applied to Guinness World Records for their achievement.

“The students’ electric car consists of a chassis from the 2000 Lola Indy, an ultra light-weight aerodynamic body and Bridgestone Ecopia EP100 tires, and a high-end electric propulsion system specially designed for the vehicle.

“With a test run showing the vehicle got around 300 mpg, the students are looking for a suitable automaker who can turn the project into a full-scale commercial entity,” reports MyFoxDC.com.

    Probably the same way Chevrolet got a 230 mpg estimate out of the Volt and Nissan 367 mpg out of the pure electric Leaf :)
