I have watched the video. It is excellent. I hope Oliver is able to bring us the car at something under 1200 lbs. It is just the pessimist in me that is worried that the production model morphs into something more like a conventional car.

I also hope that they will have a barebones model which does everything possible to keep costs down for us tightwads. 20K, for this cheapskate, is still a lot of money. I can buy a 1500 dollar car once every three years for an awful long time on that kinda dough.

Is there any more info on the hybrid? In his video he made a pretty good case for hybrids not making much sense in a thousand pound car. I wonder if it will be a series hybrid which is very simple but not as efficient or a parallel? Are there plans for a straight ICE powered model?
