Good to see the NedCar Access prototype again

850 kg mostly aluminium, good collision safety, flappy paddles, boasted a 4.7 l/100 km economy... not bad for a 1995 mini MPV...?

This could have been the Mitsubishi Space star, but Mitsubishi (participating in NedCar at the time) decided on a more conventional design.
In retrospect, what a miss.
Audi came up with a similar design in 1999: the A2.

That web page is very much 1995 too
2011 Honda Insight + HID, LEDs, tiny PV panel, extra brake pad return springs, neutral wheel alignment, 44/42 PSI (air), PHEV light (inop), tightened wheel nut.
lifetime FE over 0.17 Gmeter or 0.1 Mmile.

Investors woes:
"In hindsight, I should have placed a bet on the horse that won the race"
"In hindsight, I should have bet more on that horse"
