MaudlinMutantMollusk: Nabb1: hillbillypharmacist: "Safety of a car"?I'm gonna need to see some test results on that.Yeah, that looks like a deathtrap, especially in a side-impact collision.Having done over $6000.00 damage to a Jeep Wrangler, I was thinking of animal collisions/deer, specifically//frikkin deer
St_Francis_P: In fact, the C-1 isn't really a car at all: It's officially classified as a motorcycle, but CEO Daniel Kim says that the vehicle resists classification."It's disrupting the automotive space," says Kim.That kind of marketing-speak would scare me, even if I wanted one.
kmmontandon: FTA: Today's youths are less interested in buying cars than they are in buying iPhones and other gadgets: Car ownership among people between ages 18 and 34 is down by 30 percent in the last five years.If only there were some other explanation for this, something other than marketing trends, like an economic cause ...This thing is definitely a solution in search of a problem. I'm sure it'll be just as successful as the Segway, and for all the same reasons.
Spanky_McFarksalot: FTFA:"but that cost will go down significantly--to around $16,000--once the product gains sufficient market share to enable bulk manufacturing."Sooo, I have $16k to spend on a car....why would I pick that one?
fruitloop: Lit MotorsYes, yes they were.
RTOGUY: Can it handle a 3' snowdrift?
RTOGUY: Forget the side impact concern I'd like to know how he thinks it is capable of driving in "all weather". Anybody that lives anywhere with four distinct seasons has to look at that and wonder how it is going to handle any amount of snow. It doesn't tip over? Gee that's great! Can it handle a 3' snowdrift? Because that is my reality for at least half of the year.
