This thread or Lounge-worthy? The Rimono

The Rimono, an EV designed for the urban auto market, made out of fabric. It is a hybrid vehicle combining a scooter and an EV urban car. It covers the driver & passenger (or two kids) with a waterproof tent/tarp material. The super-lightweight Rimono is 'energized' by a five-kilowatt 6.8-horsepower electric motor, max. speed of 28 mph. The lithium-ion battery has a range of around 30 miles on a single charge. The company is planning an extra battery pack portable, so you can keep an extra on-board battery for longer trips. The dash is an iPad and the four-wheeled scooter is steered with handlebars. Undeniably going for 'soft touch' factor.

I'd be more impressed if they wee drifting that thing around the traffic cones. Does it have torque vectoring?
