Is every panel on our car plastic? Is any of it fiberglass? I assume the hard top of my coupe is steel. Am I correct? Hard to imagine it weighing 1800 pounds with all that plastic and so small.

Lots of strong, heavy steel in the tridion. Weighs about the same as a ‘60s VW Beetle that was larger but not as crash worthy.

Yes, recycled milk jugs. No fiberglass is harmed in the making of our smart. No steel in the hard top as the Tridion is super strong AND you also don't want to make it top heavy.
