On the heels of Audi unveiling its Urban Concept, Opel showing off its RAK e concept and Volkswagen pulling the sheets off its Nils concept at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show, Edison2 has revealed an electric version of the X-Prize-winning Very Light Car.

Called the eVLC, Edison2 says its electric concept packs a 10-kWh battery pack, is "supremely aerodynamic" and carries not one, not two, but four passengers in relative comfort. Edison2 says that its eVLC concept is far more efficient than a Nissan Leaf and, even though it has not yet undergone official EPA testing, the firm figures the eVLC has the makings to become the highest MPGe-rated vehicle ever. After the team won the X-Prize they hinted at developing similar vehicles that use "other power sources," and it looks like they're making good on that.

In eVLC, Edison 2 sees the "inevitable future of the automobile." Check out photos of the eVLC in our high-res image gallery and let us know if you like what you see in Comments below. Look for us to post more info on the eVLC soon.
