Land glider….hmmm wondering what kind of tires they are going to put on that one? Don’t see it making it here in the states for a looong time… unless they make a Jetson’s reference, and can increase the travel range of electric motors. Or…. we seem to fall further into a spiral of total gov. take over and forced to live with a certain range to make it to work.
WHOLY CHIT!!! $100 grand for the tango…. pffft ROFLMAO…..yea theres a seller :^/
wtf…. OKAY… are these geniuses retarded? Lets create a vehicle much like that of a motorcycle that requires a kickstand, have no doors, windows etc. BUT we will put in a windshield and a RETRACTABLE ROOF just in case you enjoy open air on the sunny days. Any one else realize how stupid this makes them. Granted the tech put into the concepts are commendable however their lack of reality is simply humorous. I guess I should put them in the idea of the people who have their roofs down in their convertibles and yet roll up all the windows, or maybe the guy that has his top down in the parking lot and stops half way to the store to turn and trigger his alarm.
Oh lord…the “Auto Moto” and the “Jin Lee” ( however they want to spell it) has that 1990’s Top Gun arcade game that was sooo fun to play because it was one of the first to give you swinging and pivoting game play while sitting at rest kind of feel…. sheesh and to complete it …the cheesy under “dash” speakers that only needs to be completed by the traditional coin slots in between.
The “tessac” and Eons ride are the only two I see being the best promise for immediate push on the buyer options. Not only are they practical but they are honest with themselves and the consumer on what they offer. The Tessac is great for those with balance issues and fear of losing control on limited traction. Same with the Piaggio. Both do what Can Am seriously lacks with their Spyder. Offering the stability and ease of movement.
Now for the RB’s and aspiring Paris Hilton dog toting as an accessory to their wardrobe nim rods out there the Peevo will likely appeal to them first. Hey what self centered and self absorbed person wouldn’t want their very own “dash friend” to consort with and not have to worry about condescending remarks or “Do you like me for me ?” type worries. However if the price were right I see a lot more less financially fortunate going after the Peevo later on. Very likely be the next BlackBerry of vehicles.
Don’t get me wrong. I like the idea of efficient cars coming out on the market and limiting fuel dependencies, but focus on the range of the vehicles first….gadgets and robotics later. Like that of the obstacle avoidance deal. Some cars already have versions of that in active cruise control. Quit with the bells and whistles that make drivers/riders complacent and stick with core purpose of the needed technologies.
Sorry folks I work in the auto industry and the “Ohhhh thats purdy” is beyond my appeal. Practical, functional, and reliable…. looks should always be last. How good are you going to look as the Fugly machine blazes past you?
****None of the spellings of the vehicles above are likely to be correct but if you watched it you know the ones I referred to.
