Why do concept car designs suck soooooo much.
 
2013-11-06 05:14:46 PM
Why on Earth would you replace traditional steering mechanics with basically the same mechanics as a Segway? This seems like a horrible idea and a horrible concept. The future of automobiles isn't this. The future of automobiles are driver-less vehicles where individuals control the vehicle as little as possible. This would improve traffic tremendously as well as hopefully reduce accidents significantly.

I got tired just thinking of standing up the whole way of my 30 minute commute.

I guess if this actually happened I wouldn't "drive" this thingamajigger to work.

Not to mention that you've increased your frontal area to accommodate the standing position, thereby increasing drag and reducing fuel mileage.

Dear Toyota: What you tried and failed to design already exists. It's called the motorcycle.

I could see these working.  Most people only really need to transport themselves and a couple bags of stuff for most trips*.  While a wee-mobile is semi-suicidal in the current paradigm where each person drives their behemoth around, if a tipping point was reached where Sherman tanks were not the norm, bulky Vespas would make sense

* Yes, yes, you always transport an entire professional football organization and 300 tons of solid lead for 6000 miles every day, one way.  You are also the odd case.

Heh. Close. Mass-Transit is great, but the problem is EVERYWHERE ELSE. That is what makes me laugh the most. They always have these grand plans of introducing new bus routes and trains and spend a shiat ton of money resulting with their plan mostly ineffective or not capable of solving the real problem. No matter what they do with mass transit, I will still need a personal vehicle.

Yep, my main transportation isn't going to be something that REQUIRES me to stand the whole way. At least if I ride the bus or train, the only reason that I stand is because it's crowded, not because some schmuck at Toyota decided it would look cool.

As for the Segway comparisons, I'm not quite sure why people don't understand how farking cool that goddam thing is. Who cares how the Segway looks, Dean Kamen is awesome.

Okay, so we combine the Reliant Robin, a trike car renowned for it's stability in corners, raise it's center of gravity by making the driver stand without restraints, make the controls (steering, acceleration, and braking) operate by requiring the unrestrained operator to shift his (or her) top-heavy, unrestrained, mass in a direction directly opposite to that of the centripetal force / inertia...

From TFA: "One analyst said the current design posed too many safety issues"

Gee, ya think?

/  Only way that could be safe is to make the top speed limited to under 3mph.
//  They should make them out of razor blades and fuel them with nitro glycerin.
///  Probably improve the overall safety.

I think in practical terms the FV2 won't see the light of day - if you are standing up and leaning to move it, my first thought would be, what if you hit something? The likelihood of it being licensed in today's safety-conscious environment is zero.

How would that be any more dangerous than a motorcycle?

Motorists of the future

I love that despite things like climate change, finite resources like fossil fuels and the compelling need to introduce better means of mass transportation in urban areas, there's still this pervasive sense of car culture and "personal vehicles."

Love that 20th century mindset.

The first "personal vehicle" was the horse.  That mindset predates the 20th Century by a little bit.

Or that my life is not a giant routine. I frequently need to drive to clients during the day who could be all over town or drive to another city. I take people to lunch, I eat out frequently, I work hours all over the place, etc. That isn't even to mention that mass transit is a hassle and take far longer than if I were to drive directly where I need to go. My vehicle provides me freedom, where Mass Transit does not. This is almost entirely why our infrastructure in the States revolves around personal transportation.

I'm okay with mass transportation as an option if you live in an urban area. I'm even okay using it if it serves my needs. But I don't want to be beholden to it, since I may need to go somewhere or even just want to go somewhere that requires a personal vehicle.

I'm sorry you believe in one size fits all solutions and a biased mindset that doesn't match the reality for most people. Enjoy having your attempts at inconveniencing car owners through taxes and fees repeatedly get cut off at the knees while retaliatory voters block your better mass transit.

Then you should have to pay more to use your car. It's that simple, whether it's higher taxes or paying to drive on roads.

Why should someone who doesn't live in a place to take advantage of mass transit or otherwise has a perfectly cromulent usecase for having their own vehicle be punished?

Why do you insist on "social progress" being YOUR way and not, say, finding ways of making vehicles more efficient and sustainable? Hell if we can make locomotives that move thousands of tons of weight run on electric motors powered by diesel engines, whycant we do the same with common vehicles? Why not pursue this rather than forcemass transit and punishment to thosewho don't use it?

Who here is anti-mass transit? All I see is people telling you how much of a pretentious ignorant douche you are for believing that mass-transit is an effective solution in all cases. Should we invest in mass-transit and building the infrastructure? Sure, but personal transportation is extremely important to the American way of living and will be that way for a long time to come. No one here is saying to leave things be. You seem to be on a crusade to shape the world to conform to some retarded viewpoint.
