I'd hoped they had adopted Kuttner's inwheel suspension, but no joy. Vanderhall has a fair-weather side-by-side two seater, not a daily driver. I like the 4-passenger design.
WTF is with that huge ugly grill?

It is an EV. It doesn't need that.

One of the brilliant things about the VLC was the pointy nose that incorporated deflection as a safety feature. They have thrown that concept away.

I do like the tadpole layout. It is simple, cheap to build and gets them out of a lot of ridiculous safety regulations.

Would love to see that vehicle with a sleek enclosed cabin and pointy nose.
