it says after 5 years it can be recycled....yeah i wanna spend $80,000 to recycle it just as it gets paid off.

i know there is no price on the car yet, that i saw, but i doubt it will be cheap enough to recycle after just 5 years.

There is no price because it was just a design exercise.

It doesn't make it clear in the artical. I saw it in Popular Mechanics or something. Not really a practical concept car.
