Commuter Cars has been around a long time. The idea of half-sized cars is pretty neat, but they've been stuck where they're at for years now. Gas at $4 could generate some investment, but they're still a ways from production, to put it mildly.

Cars are just really expensive without mass production, which takes huge amounts of investment and some serious design limitations (only injection-molded plastic or pressed sheet steel is cheap enough). I'd like to have more choices in cars, but I really doubt Commuter Cars, Obvio, Aptera, Tesla, or anybody else new is going to make it. Most likely they'll make a few cars then dry up and blow away.
