Since it's EV only, ingesting the exhaust gasses is one thing he won't have to worry about

That's a beautiful creation for sure, aerodynamically.
I'd love to see a drag study on this car.

I'm a but curious about the weight distribution. I clicked on the first video link, and from that, it would appear that all of the weight is up front.

Where can we find out more info on this one ? I searched "Karmin Projects Insight" in Google and came up with nothing.

The underside of the tail does need to be closed in to be better aerodynamically. Having it wide open means it could be parachuting.

Randomly remembered this while attempting to study--studying is going that well!

What would it take to do this while leaving it a gas hybrid?

Build a cage for the rear end and do the bottom, with a seal all around, to keep out the exhaust, and probably replace the gas tank. What else?

To slightly correct the OP, the EV1 had more than 100 miles range; with the second generation batteries.

is it me or the taper of the tumble home could have been more aggressive (it looks like there is a bit of reflux camber.
