Of course, there's quite a difference between e-Wolf's e2 (and its e1 for that matter) and other sporty EVs from companies like Tesla, Fisker, and Shelby, chiefly that those cars are in production if not already on the road, whereas e-Wolf exists only in renderings and spec sheets. Still, if its claims of an 187-mile range on a thirty-minute charge turn out to be the real deal, the e2 could find itself at the front of the pack, not that anyone should mind the view from behind.
Might be better to title it as eWolf is planning a next gen supercar. Concept does look pretty, but it sounds as if they have a ways to go
Why can't they put that kind of body on regular cars?
Does it have to be a sports car to look good?
Yeah, I know. Seriously! This car looks awesome! Putting this style on regular cars would be cool.
I assume those are heat sinks on the back for the batteries. If so, pretty fantastic design. I didn't know heat sinks could look sexy. If they don't serve that purpose, however, i wouldn't consider them to be necessary at all for aesthetics.
O I Agree...!
Here's a hint to manufacturers.
Make your cheap cars look like Porsche's, not like BUGS or TURDWAGONS.... O Yes, You will make a lot more money....
The concept is Really not that hard to to understand or is it? HAHHAHA....! If i had a car manufacturing company i would've been the richest one.
If you look at the coefficient of drag on different cars, you'll see that Ferraris, Porsches, etc are not very aerodynamic-- relative to cars like the Prius or Insight.
Ferrari designs their cars to be stable at high speed; the Prius is designed to be very fuel efficient.
If a Ferrari looked like a Prius, at high speeds it would not stay on the ground; if a Prius looked like a Ferrari, it wouldn't be far less fuel efficient [especially at higer speeds].
Not so, A Prius cannot even begin to drive fast enough for drag to even begin to make a difference thats for one. For two, there are a gazillion ways to tweak a car to look good and be super efficient.
Manufacturers get too much influence from weird concept artists and are totally falling for the balloon look you see in cars all around, same as with these anorexic models, they think they look good because society wants you super thin where in reality you look sick and need to eat more.
And yes wind will more easily tip an inflated car than one that is low and sleek.
For those who want this body on regular cars, you are missing the whole point. Car bodies are made to conform with a car's main purpose.
Look at this car body, and you'll notice that it is made to go fast, look cool, and that's about it. Look at the purpose of "regular" cars and you'll see that they are looking for maximum passenger and cargo space, comfort, durability, and cost effectiveness.
Those who buy "regular" cars are not looking to have the coolest car in the world. They want a car they can afford, that has space for them and their friends/families, cargo space to haul stuff around, that is safe, that will last a long time, that is high enough that they can actually drive over speed bumps without high-centering the car, that doesn't cost $25,000 to fix after a small fender bender.
No, the regular car buyers of the world would never buy a car that looks like this, simply because it would go against all their needs.
Welcome back from your dreams and into the real world with real people who have real problems and look for real solutions.
O no, no dream all real my friend i can assure you.
Those who are into ugly cars, Let them have it, there are too many too choose from so go right ahead... lol...
Everyone i know agrees 100% with me and look above you people here too, so people wanting this is very real.
I don't drive a stationwagon so i don't need it.
Like mentioned what i'm asking for is simply a good looking 4 seater design, it won't cost them more to design than regular ugly cars.
It would make for a better selling car though. Just take the Honda Ballade for example they started out with a good flat sleek design in the 80s-90s
now the ballade looks like anything but sleek, i drove one myself and the experience being that low felt great, had superb handling and it wasn't even bumpy,
plus the car looked good for its time.
Same with Toyota, all inflated now. It's funny actually thinking about it. How these big bosses push these ugly designs, and how they are influenced to making their choices.
With Tesla, eWolf, Fisker and so many others cranking out really potent EVs, the old-school car makers can no longer ignore the trend and will have to produce full electrics to compete. The Volt, Prius and similar hybrids will no longer be as desirable, as true EVs start to hit the market and consumers see just how different EVs are from hybrids: far simpler, more powerful, hyper-efficient and nearly maintenance-free. Costing just $10. or so a week to operate, EVs will have a healthy edge.
Currently, "range anxiety", in which drivers can be apprehensive about getting stuck somewhere without a charging station nearby, may be somewhat of an issue. But as drivers become more EV-savvy and charging stations become more ubiquitous, EVs will become the norm.
amazing design, great milage my only question how much?
god i hate all these stupid super electric cars. there are soo few it wouldnt make any difference. just slap in a twin turbo viper engine and call it a day
Actually, it is possible to make good family electric cars that look really good, be fuel efficient, and practical.
It just needs a breakaway from the designers' thinking.
I think it won't be long before we see some real good looking family type cars, and in the process, some really ugly ones, too.
Nice design. I like it.
