Despite it never really catching on - the ELR was a fantastic looking car.

There are a few ELRs in my area, but it seems like anyone remotely wealthy around here wants a Tesla if they're going electric. Otherwise they buy a Volt or Fusion Energi. Annoyingly, the BMW i3 is catching on and the little turds are everywhere. Still only a few i8s in the immediate area that I've seen.
I overheard a woman complaining to someone the other day, something to the effect of "He's spending his inheritance and he doesn't even know how to turn the car on! I said don't buy a Tesla, buy Tesla stock!"

The problem with the ELR, much like many other "normal-looking" EVs and hybrids... that's just it, "normal-looking"...

A large portion of the eco-motorist segment CRAVE attention for driving an environmentally-friendly vehicle... the vehicle has to be distinguishable as such from a far distance.

You want to properly market an eco-friendly vehicle? Make it awkward-looking as fuck.

#6, Sounds like an Onion headline - "Auto press decries new hybrid model as too aesthetic"

But yeah, a lot of people can't be content in their choices unless they're ramming them down your throat.

I don't think I've ever seen one of these in person.

#7, They're seeking public validation of their purchase - which is at the core of every conspicuous consumer.

The worst of the worst iPhone users will loudly screech at you when you remind them an iPhone is just another mass-produced consumer electronic. It's simultaneously satisfying and alarming.

#9, "Oh, let me pay $100 for this super-duper ultra-protective case... but with a giant exposed gap on the back to show off that my device is, in fact, an Apple product."

#10, As for logos - I'll double down on Apple and say that every macbook that has an illuminated logo on the lid is as equally as vulgar as an RGB gaming laptop. Then the worst of the worst will instantly jump in to defend the poor consumer laptop with the most accessible buzzword they know:

"Minimalist"

It's not minimalistic if your mass-produced consumer electronic has an illuminated logo. In fact - the less there is of the logo - the better.

Stealth wealth can't take over fast enough.

#11, Vulgar is a Mercedes with the optional illuminated grille badge.

People forget you could get a Merc with a standard illuminated grille badge back in 1986. It's called a Sable.

Sure it's minimalist, compared to a manhole lid.

#12, Regardless - logos and emblems shouldn't be illuminated like a Thai red-light district - unless that was the intent.
