    Just a tri wheel car ...

    Seen 2 different styles... one with the rear wheel drive, front wheel steering.. and the other was front wheel drive with rear wheel steering. I think the overall results show best control and performance with the latter.

    Anywho... Would be pretty good in some conditions. Obviously not a family vehicle though in terms of room for lots of occupants.

    its much cheaper than a mini cooper, that is the only thing that makes it stand out. When Top Gear reviews it, then I might consider it. My idea is that it is another OBAMA funded economy project that will ultimately fail.

    It's not like it's never been done before... Nothing new here really.

    A thing like this won't hit off because you can't go shopping with it, you can't bring anyone else with you and a number of different things. Only thing it's really good for is getting to and from work at best. I wouldn't want to sit in it if there's an accident either, plus I'd feel a bit claustrophobic in it...

    Oh, and it's really ugly as well. Design wise it's pure crap.

    Two things about that video. Nothing on three wheels has a future, and gas is still not expensive in America.
