Huh. They're hiring for a bunch of positions right now.

Concept render:



Reality:



That render is something else. For 4 people to sit upright, those wheels have to be, what--36"?

Depends on what you consider upright. 20's would work for a 45* recline

I don't think anyone would tolerate that much inclination; with the seats all facing each other, I expect they're trying to make it easy for passengers to converse while they're whisked along.

Concept is dumb. No suspension? Front shape is the same as the rear? It has neither form nor function.

I prefer the Local Motors Olli



Similar footprint with more capacity, and ingress/egress isn't problematic.
