PHOENIX -- Car expert Wally Cahill gave "Good Morning! Arizona" viewers an exclusive first look at a unique urban vehicle that's built right here in Arizona.

It might look like a little car, but it's not. With just three wheels, it's actually classified as a motorcycle.

"This is the ultimate golf cart," Cahill said. Except it's enclosed. And air conditioned.

Designed to give drivers "independence from high gas prices," the Urban Car 3 is made by Cave Creek-based Identity Motors USA.

"It's eco-friendly and it's affordable," explained. Alex Joiner Jr., CFO of Identity Motors USA.

While there are a variety of upgrades available, the base model is about $9,000.

"You can't buy a golf cart that cheap," Cahill said.

the Urban Car 3 seats four people and is street legal.

"It rocks," Cahill said.

In addition to the four-door model, there's also a two-door pickup model.
