Pininfarina B0 ev, comming in 2009

pininfarina seems to have done it!

i really like this design, set along the lines of the curent small european mpv's it seems to make no compromises to the specs of this class.

looks pretty clean cut, with a lot of attention to aero without compromising the practical shape. it looks futuristic enough to be a car of tomorrow, but not in a way people wouldn't get used to it, or it would cause anyone sore eyes.

i think this is where GM with the volt went wrong... they went for a strong visual impact, while they where still to get all the technical bits sorted out.

Pininfarina | B0 (B Zero)

i'd love to have one of these!

Looks like a nice vehicle.

I've heard from many sources that supercapacitors are not ready for production use yet.
