    Rob Wray, from mp3Car, shows us the first electric cooled 3-wheeled motorcycle. It's an entry into this year's Xprize competition. With 170HP, 0-60 in 5 seconds, a 150MPH top speed, and weighing in at only 1800 pounds, it's surprisingly performance oriented. It goes roughly 200 miles on single charge at slower speeds or about 100 miles at 60 miles per hour. The car can be charged to about 80 percent in about 20 minutes at a charging station.
