I agree. I guess the designer of this vehicle was projecting his vision of how a Dune Buggy or Jeep would look in the future. But with today's Jeep vehicles, doors and a roof are still provided to the car buyer.
I agree. This vehicle will definitely appeal to the under 30 car buyer. The esthetics of the vehicle are quite appealing and the skateboards mounted on top is definitely a social networking conversational piece for the energetic and adventurous riders this vehicle is targeted for. Just curious if a sleek design vehicle with roof top mounted skateboards would appeal to Tony Hawk.
agreed, for a production you have to see the utility of a product. This car in its present state is lacking many basic things. What if it rains? Can the car be parked in a not so safe neigborhood? I guess these are the basics things that have to be fullfilled. Needs come first, and afterwards the wants.
That's a great question, naperlou, but I don't know the answer, since Daimler did not provide that information. I can tell you, however, that its cousin, the Smart ForTwo ED, has a curb weight of 1,808 lbs. This must weigh significantly less, since it has no doors or windows, and an open roof.
Cap'n, good to have you back. This is an interesting concept. It is sort of silly, since it does rain sometimes. I assume you could put something like the old side curtains on this car. It would just take a couple of holes drilled in the body. Then it would be like the old cars from the 1940s.
