    Sweet video, Desdemona!!! :thumbs_up:

    I'm still concerned about crash ratings (I don't think they've done the testing yet)... those rear facing child seats probably won't make the cut and the lack of a defined bumper on the front probably isn't good either. Regardless... I want one!!!!

    Of course it will have to pass the US safety standards, so some of the design may have to change and it is a prototype, so that wouldn't even be alpha. :)

    It is sweet, but I would no more be able to afford it than I could the Aptera. I have heard that they plan to do yet another model which will be about $35,000. I am sure that is going to be more doable for more people.

    It would be interesting if the next gen cars are made in America, and are not made by the big 3 but by these Silicon Valley type companies. In fact that's how it seems anyway.
