When we find modded cars such as the Smart
or the Tesla
, we always raise an eyebrow about the impact this might have on fuel economy
. However, this is not the case with the Aerocivic
or the vehicle you see above: a modded Prius
that is supposed to have an even lower aerodynamic drag than the original. According to AutoLabo, the creators said the current build opens the door to more "eco-tuning," leaving aside questions about the look of huge fenders and nearly-impossible additions that cover the rear wheels. Does it really work? We're not sure, since CO2
figures were not released. But, if you'd like to tune your Prius and see for yourself, the kit is currently being shipped from Japan.
