I have photos of their Commuter(the car on the main page) and sat in it. It's a REALLY roomy car for a small ECO machine. The engine is an SFI updated Suzuki 1.0L that they said is able to hit 90 in the prototype.
Starts at 13.9k according to the guys I was having a few drinks with and will have airbags, roll bars on the convertibles, and normal car crumple zones. They figure they'd make it meet car safety requirements even though they didn't need to because it doesn't have 4 wheels.
They expect the first production cars to be available by December. I was hanging around them while they were getting the booth ready at SEMA and a lot of people stopped to look and were shocked to find out it was nowhere near a 40k price tag, not even close to 20k.
I have pictures but they are on my camera that seems to have gotten misplaced between Vegas and work. Pretty sure it's at home tho.
Honestly, the trunk is pathetic, you won't get much in there as their cleaning supplies and a big floor jack all but filled the trunk but the behind the seat storage is impressive. No idea where the spare goes, didn't think to ask.
And the engine is mechanically the same 1.0L 3 cylinder you had in the metro, just has better engine management now.
According to the website, there is a compact spare.
I noticed that there were regular press releases up to April of this year. Then none. Why? No dealers listed. Why? How does one purchase one?
Edit: I see that they're going to be at a show in Vegas this week...so I guess there is some activity. Good Luck to them (but why share a booth with Pulstar?)
I like the three wheel idea...if I were good at fabrication (what I know about fabrication can be written on the head of a pin with room for about 20 dancing angels) I'd convert a Geo (or any front drive car, for that matter) to a three-wheeler
