XR3: DIY Automobile

A private product design firm in Glendale, Arizona is now offering a $200 set of construction plans that will allow anyone to build a plug-in hybrid that gets 225 miles per gallon. Dubbed the XR3, Robert Q. Riley Enterprises says the car has a 100-mile range can use different drive trains to make it either all electric or a diesel-based hybrid. No word on how much the parts cost to make your own car but I’d guesstimate somewhere around the $5000 range for the electric model. It’s no Batmobile but it’ll have to do.
