Electric vehicles are all the rage, but few have pushed the design envelope as far as the Aptera Typ-1, which hits the streets of California in December. Aptera Motors claims that its vehicle can travel up to 190 kilometres on a single charge, aided by roof-mounted solar cells. The vehicle, which is officially classified as a motorbike, will sell for $27,000.

A petrol/electric hybrid version with a longer range is due to be launched in 2009 for $30,000.
