Another con job
You know, I think this personifies the current (sorry) rash of electric powered vehicles. It's not really very versatile. It's performance and range is pretty abysmal. And the R&D has been kept to the bare minimum. But the most telling part is the price.
There is just no justification for asking so much cash for a vehicle with such a low parts count and lack of any infrastructure behind it, that provides vastly inferior protection, performance and practicality when compared to other vehicles, and has no meaningful reason behind it's design. These vehicles aren't being created to satisfy a demand but to make people a fast buck. And that is a fundamental mistake which today's market can see right through.
The article mentioned Issigonis, and it's worth thinking about him here in the context of designing an alternative fulled vehicle. The mini was created to respond to the sales of the bubble cars. Issigonis believed he could do far better and provide transportation to the average family within a small package. His focus was on that, not on raking in some quick money. Now, if he were alive today, I somehow doubt very much that he would conjure up anything quite so backwards or badly reasoned as the Tazzari - or the G-Wizz or Tesla or others. His ideas would not, in isolation, be far-fetched either. Just clever, practical and reasoned. But as a whole he would quite probably swat away these pretenders with something quite extraordinary.
Sadly Sir Alec was a real one-off. Gordon Murray, for his cleverness, is perhaps thinking along some slightly wrong lines with the T25 mentioned by another contributor recently - but he's about the only one having a real go. The rest, as so amply demonstrated by this misguided offering, are a complete waste of time.
