Very nice. Very "template." And lots of great tapering around the passenger compartment when seen from above. Clearly being marketed to an Asian market primarily, given the rhetorical style of the promo language that dominate the latter portion. Veiled Buddhism references (lotus) and Asian painting styles, mainly Japanese and Chinese watercolors.

Looks nice, but how can you make a car like this roll on a real road when you see the distance between wheels and wheel arches?

Julianís post made me go back and watch the video again this time paying attention. The windtunnel smoke shots are questionable to say the least.






0.146 ...???


As the old saying goes...


Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence...


Hopefully theyíll release more information regarding how they came up with that number.


I still like the styling and the interior layout .

Looks like sub-critical Reynolds number, and a laminar boundary layer, which would be incapable of following the aft-body contour. They need at least 20-mph full-scale dynamic similarity ( verisimilitude).

3-D printed structures

I bit on this one. They're moving towards the cubic-octet, super-strength, structural-foam,synthetic bird-bone, which is a revolution in materials technology.

Bucky Fuller would approve.

Good close-ups in a walk-around for the first 4 minutes, then they lapse into English. Low Cd conflated with top speed in the title.


I question how they could get to that Cd with open wheel wells. The face of the wheel/tire is monolithic (with a cut line) do they clock the wheel and tire?

The green —excuse me, Shady Lake— strip around the wheel opening may be a flexible material.

The door is massive, maybe 75% the length of the car, plus half the front wheel well. Lifted from the Ford Eos concept that had four doors. You do get those little gullwing hatches in the tail.



Six passengers or 5Ĺ?

That rumble seat is pretty cool. Clever positioning of a child safety seat too. Close to the adults at the front but not taking up a seat for itself.
