Hey, let's take a Smart, strip it of any real usefulness it might have possibly already had, and then make it even uglier!

#1, Actually, they didn't even use a smart, they used a Chinese rip-off of a smart as a basis.

I'm sure DaimlerAG USA is drawing up the lawsuit papers as we speak.

Cross a Smart with a pop-up camper and you get this.

#4, Smug Bostonian environmentalist trendy yuppie-hippies. The kind of people that have a Prius over a Civic Hybrid, because you can't tell a Civic Hybrid is a hybrid from a mile away.

#4, People who think Who Killed the Electric Car is the greatest film ever made, and that the GM EV1 was an "exotic" and "one of the fastest production cars ever built" (two claims I've actually seen attributed to the damn thing), and cried when GM took them all and mashed 'em.

#6, Well, I wasn't happy with that decision either, but at least they saved some.

#6, The EV1 had numerous faults that could cause tons of legal headaches, and GM decided to kill the whole project before they got sued out of existence.

#9, Kind of reminds me of Citroen crushing all examples of some models, I can recall two cases, one of the wankel GS (and some sort of wankel Ami version before that) and one of that total failure group B ZX monstrosity.

So motherfucking ugly and that 'performance' can be outmatched by a goddamn scooter.

Chrysler also infamously did the same with the turbine car project in the 1960s. In fact, that project almost completely mirrored the GM EV1 project, except that the turbine car was actually cool, and there was less public outcry.

GM was lucky that they were only "leasing" the EV1, without ever offering a chance for someone to "buy" one... that means they didn't have to "buy back" the cars like Nissan did with the American-market Nissan Van in the early '90s.

Chevy introduced an aircooled car in the 20s, only a few hundred were made and only about 100 made it to the public before they were recalled for overheating problems, only 2 exist today.

#15, I've read about them before, they had copper fins on the engine or some such for heat transfer.

I've also heard Citroen destroyed a bunch of unsold 2cvs that didn't meet the next year's regulation rather than pay to ship them back to France.

#13, That cost em a pretty penny, since they paid about $6000 (average retail price) for each one.


You know something's bad when the manufacturer offers to pay you to get rid of it :P
