Le Blue Car

Here's another one we will never see. It might give the Smart car a run for the money. I think they were looking at it costing around 25-35K.

Looks like it was an engineering/corporate marketing exercise to promote their technology within the industry:

Quote:
The company originally announced that they wouldn't make the car but sell it to a carmaker. Later, they announced that their technology has been sold to Valeo and PSA (Citro├źn-Peugeot).

I love the 3 seat design though. It would be tight but it would be nice to have the option. I wonder if the ones that bought the rights to the batteries are going to put them in a safe so no one else can use the technology.
