It goes without saying: times are tough for Americans right now. We’re all boot strapped and even though the price per barrel of oil is going down gasoline isn’t. The VKM 50, ELV’s latest hybrid scooter manages a surreal 180MPG thanks to it’s 49cc gas powered electric engine. Top speed maxes out at 40MPH, but with this kind of mileage who cares. ELV plans to roll out a 149cc version, which will probably push the VKM 50 to highway speed capable. Best of all, it’ll only cost $2,895!
