Zap Xebra
Zap Xebra
Cost: $11,700
Charge time: 6 hours
Range: 25 miles
Top speed: 40 mph

Technically speaking, the Xebra isn't a car. That's because it has only one front wheel, which makes it a motorcycle even though it can amazingly seat up to four.

And as a motorcycle, it can go faster than 25 mph without having to meet the heavy-weight safety requirements of a real car. But with a top speed of 40 mph, the Xebra still isn't suited to highway driving. It can go 25 miles on full charge.

The Xebra is made by California-based electric vehicle maker, Zap, but it's manufactured in China. It's available with leather seats and a CD player.
