Cool.

I am continually amazed at how small this car is when you see it along side something (like a person) for reference. It's deceptive - just like the VW 1L.

Obviously just a prototype, but I noticed...

- tiny rearview mirrors
- 1 windshield wiper
- sliding window sections (instead of roll down windows)
- they made some hubcaps for the space-saver spares they're using as wheels/tires

bah. boring video. It does not show anything practical, something the Loremo touts in transportation. Worthless video that shows me it handles like a go-kart, as assumed it would. I've had 3-4 years to remember this twice and forget it twice. I want more than a crappy marketing video.

I hope they plan to have more ventilation than just those two sliders on the side glass if they plan to sell many of them in countries with summer climates warmer than Germany's. With all of that near horizontal glazing the interior would be an oven under a tropical sun. Also the interior seating, controls, and electronics will need to be water proofed for when entering and exiting the car in the midst of a heavy downpour, unless they can install a retractable cover that unrolls when you open the front door/hood/lid.

They also need to do something about that windshield wiper hanging out in the breeze. At least center it on the windshield if they can't hide it behind a wind deflector at the base of the windshield.
