Last year, at the Frankfurt Motor Show, Loremo presented their super efficient concept car. And now it seems that the car gets closer and closer to production, because Loremo announced the car got a new design, which includes a restyled front and rear and larger tail-lights). The new Loremo significantly grew in height in width, offering a more spacious interiour for its passengers. However, despite the larger front surface, engineers at Loremo managed to keep the low air resistance level, very important for the fuel economy.
Weighing 450 kg, the Loremo is powered by a two-cylinder generating 20 bhp for LS (0-100 km/h in 20 seconds and 160 km/h top speed) and a three-cylinder producing 49 bhp for GT (0-100 km/h in 9 seconds and 220 km/h top speed), both turbodiesels. But really impressive are the fuel economy figures: the LS reaches 1.5 liters/100km (156 mpg), while the GT reaches 2.7 liters/100 km (8.7 mpg).
The Loremo is expected to go on sale in 2009 and it will cost 11,000 Euros (LS) and 15,000 Euros (GT). More photos after the jump.
