Mirai electricity-powered car is the world’s lowest roadworthy car
And if you’ve been harboring the notion that those tall and chunky fuel-suckers we call SUVs today are cool, give this little car a second look. Crowned the “World’s lowest roadworthy car”, this car by the students and teachers at the Okayama Sanyo High School in Asakuchi, Japan, is a single seater that stands 17.7 inches at its highest point from ground level. Called the Mirai, the car powers up using electricity and sports a battery to store all the juice required to propel it forward. Also, this car is pretty exhilarating to drive, particularly at higher speeds given the fact that it sticks closer to the road, with the driver maneuvering his way around towering sedans, SUVs and massive tractor-trailers!
