back to article Swiss EV coupé gets Berlin runabout

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.

    Well, it's consistent

    Design-wise it's pathetic.

    Engineering-wise it's a botch job.

    Styling-wise it's horrific.

    This brings absolutely nothing new to the party.

    Nice idea but...

    ...why does it look so goofy?

    ...have the made it look not only horrible, but stupid as well?

    Hardly anyone's going to buy a car that looks like that. Why not stick with the successful, tried and tested car-shaped car?

    And yet

    I read today that the Bolivian el-presidente is endeavouring to ensure that the world's supply of Lithium is 'controlled' like OPEc manages the oil price. So producing Li-Ion based cars may well become rather costly.

    Shame really.

    Never mind, I shall have to put up with my Italian V6 for a while longer :-)

    So French!

    From the challenging looks, I'm guessing the French coach builder Heuliez got stuck with all the ex-Citroen designers that got the boot when PSA got access to the Nissan design team. Seeing as it still seems to offer just two seats and a lot of ugliness, how do they think it is going to compete against cars like the Tesla?

    Well, that's me off my lunch now. That is one of the worst looking cars ever. As well as being yet another EV with a pointless solar cell on the roof.

    Range Extender

    "Interestingly, the options list also includes a “range extender” which we take to mean to larger battery pack. "

    ... or a very long extension cord.

    @Solar panel still good on a snowy day?

    As far as I can see this vehicle has no need of a solar panel, from this picture the mains lead can be clearly seen...

    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

    range extender

    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!

    I look forward to the Register chronicling it's progress since I really think I'll need to say it again sometime soon.
