About Obvio!

Obvio! is a Brazilian automobile manufacturer. The company is specialized in the production of microcars. They produce the 828 and the 012. These cars are planned to be distributed through ZAP in the USA . A dealer and service network is being established in the United States and Canada.

The cars are mid-engined using a continuously variable transmission (CVT) that can also mimic a 6 speed sequential gearbox, and powered by a 4 cylinder, inline 16 valve 1.6 litre 115 hp Tritec engine (high power version with either 170 hp or 250 hp are also available). They are described as "high performance urban cars". Fuel consumption is 12.5 km/litre (29.40 MPG) in the city or 17.3 km/litre (40.69 MPG) in highways. It runs on either pure alcohol (E100) or gasoline or any mix thereof. An all electric version is also planned.

The chassis is designed as a series of ellipses (a system called "Niess Elliptical Survival Rings") to be strong, yet low in weight. The cars have one bench seat that seats three, and are fitted with airbags. It has McPherson suspension and disc brakes all round. The internal and external panels of the bodyshell are made in ABS/PMMA plastic. It uses scissor doors and also has a Boblbee backpack space integrated into the design.

Car Insurance Comparison – Why It is Important

Knowing what to look for when making a car insurance comparison is getting to be more important all of the time. Most, if not all states require motorists to have some level of auto insurance.

But now, states like Mississippi that do not have insurance databases are going to have them, and there must be proof of insurance before the automobile can get its tags renewed. According to the Jackson Free Press, the Mississippi legislature passed a new law in mid-March of 2011 requiring that motorists have more than just an insurance card, but actually have the insurance and be in the database. No insurance means no tags. This will prevent motorists from signing up for insurance and then canceling the policy to save money and still have the card.

With this becoming more common, it is more important now than ever to know how to make a car insurance comparison. Everyone wants to save money on auto insurance, and if that is the name of your game, you will want to get the absolute minimum that your state requires. That does not necessarily mean that you are going to have great insurance, though, because it will most likely just be liability. If your car still has some value to it, this may not be the best for you. If your car is totaled, you will have no way to recover the loss.

If you are already covered under a health insurance plan, it may not be necessary to get additional medical coverage with your auto insurance. If not, this could be crucial. Other additions that you will have to consider include towing, comprehensive coverage, theft, extra liability, car rental and a number of other options your agent will be happy to show you.
