Alright Pythagoras. :roll:

It's not made of triangles though is it. ;)

Mm, isn't this going to very easily buckle along those "edges" in any kind of side-on collision? It's going to form a huge discontinuity in stress along that line, and fissure.

Isn't the lack of crumple zones also a bit of a, um, risk?

Yeah that feels like one of the concerns.

I'm sure there are lots of clever people working on this, and there's loads that they could be doing regarding the chassis and internal frame that minimises any potential weakness in the "external" design, but it still raises some eyebrows from an engineering perspective.

I don’t see how it possibly passes pedestrian safety

The Homer is a better design, unironically

I mean it has a separate kid-bubble, that's pretty good

I don’t think I’ve grown up because that looks pretty great to my N64-developed brain.

Elon Musk is the worse though.

I appreciate the outrun vibes Elon, but you really got to cool your jets.

Isn't that After Burner not Outrun?

Not that shitty kind of outrun, the good, synthwavey kind.

Hydrogen fuel cell vehicles are the answer to that problem as they only require a small battery for the electronic systems with the majority of the electricity for the motors being generated when needed.

Its also relatively environmentally friendly to produce the hydrogen if renewable energy is used to 'split' the hydrogen from water (e.g. an offshore windfarm could produce it and pipe it to the mainland in a similar way to natural gas currently is).

There's also the added bonus of not having to wait several hours to charge the batteries, it takes just a few minutes to fill up the hydrogen tank.

sadly though there are currently only 8 places in the whole UK where you can fill up hydrogen fuelled vehicles so they're not exactly practical yet.

I think it's the greatest looking car in the world.

I love deLoreans, and I love triangles.

I like it, curved edges are the worst and all modern cars look rubbish

Bringing back the Pontiac Aztec features, I like it. But why would anyone want unbreakable glass? Like it's kind of important in case of an accident where the doors get messed up to be able to break the windows.

I don't think the people who this appeals to really have that as a very high priority when choosing a car.

Hope nobody leaves any children or pets in any Tesla's on hot days, because nobody's going to be able to save them like they might a child in literally any other vehicle. :shifty:
