Yikes, its fast! 0-60 in 6.7. 21 kWh pack... nice nice. And it looks good IMO.

I think that is an error in the ABG post -- it does 0-60kph in 6.7sec.

Neil -

I like the emergency stop button in red :

Probably a prototype-only feature.

Yet another 2-seater. I look forward to seeing the 4 seater; but I just have to wonder why all these manufacturers purposely build cars that limit themselves in the market they can reach. I HAVE to be missing something here....

What I can't figure out is why 4 seaters are so common. The average contents is about 1.3 people in North America. When we really care about efficiency, we ride bicycles, and there are a thousand single bikes for every tandem. In India, (years ago) I noticed that trucks and busses didn't generally move until they were up to the GVW as a minimum.

BTW, the Nido started out as a "Safety Car" and I always wished it had been chosen as the Smart shape.
