I think this is interesting. It is like cross between a Renault Twizzy and a Smart Fortwo.
Car Scoops has an article on the Eli Zero. It is like a cross between the Renault Twizzy and the Smart Fortwo.

I am still looking for their web site.

It's a Twizy with the wheels and the seats of a 453. To be honest, I think it looks better than the Twizy (pictured below). Who wants to bet it's cobbled together by some random company in a country that doesn't care about copyright? :D

A) i hate when companies or websites use computer generated voiceovers! They're so freakin annoying it's not even funny.

B) kinda looks a little horrendous to me. It's like a Smart with an even SHORTER wheelbase, almost looks like it might even be a bit narrower as well. And is it just me (or the angles on the car)... or does it look like those tires have a POSITIVE camber?

Now that the Consumer Electronic Show is over, why aren't there more details about the car?
Vaporware. :shrug:

Most "cars" that debut at CES never actually become reality. They drum up interest, sometimes get investors/reservations, then they disappear never to be seen again.
