We reported on the unveiling of the Swiss Mindset leccy coupé back in December 2008. The world of new electric car announcements being what it is, we perhaps wouldn't have been massively surprised if we had never heard another peep out of the company again. But it's nice to be proved wrong, and even nicer to see that the Mindset …
Well, it's consistent
Design-wise it's pathetic.
Engineering-wise it's a botch job.
Styling-wise it's horrific.

@Solar panel still good on a snowy day?

Is that a mains lead...
or just a crack in the road?
Very eco friendly
That must be one of the ugliest cars I've ever seen - especially the outsized pram wheels
Very eco-friendly, so ugly it won't sell many
this often refers to a small gasoline (petrol) generator which can charge the batteries.
I've already said how ugly this car is
in a comment on the previous article,
this car is ugly!
