That was for the original Insight, these renderings were from the late 90's. It was originally slated to be a sports car with a straight six and super capacitors, rather than a 3 cylinder with NiMH cells.

If only it didn't have those stupid gull-wing doors.

Yeah! Real [race] cars don't have doors.

Ecky -- So that explains those massive rear air scoops.

From sketch to render — As I expected, the DLO, wheels size and ground clearance are all more reasonable.

Volkswagen has said it plans to launch 30 new electric models across multiple brands between now and 2025.
I'm starting to think Dieselgate was a good and necessary thing.

The Volkswagen I.D. Is The Electric Future Of Compact Cars With A 373 Mile Range



I'd understand better if I could touch those wheels or see them under a moving light source. I get that the outer facets are flat and the center is recessed, and there are lefts and rights.

I think those are half-closed louvers.
