    This is an IMA based Hybrid Vehicle.

    And a Reasonably cheap one at that.

    this just looks like a better looking version of the prius, the original insight was so much more original

    I like the looks, a lot like the FCX and just cool. They use these on the new show "Parks and Recreation"

    Why do all Hybrids look fail?

    Because they are all optimised for the best aerodynamic figures acheivable so they are as "green" and efficient as possible. So the computer software analysing the optiosn will always come up with the same solution

    IIRC the new Merc E-Class has a 0,24 CX coefficient which is pretty excellent and doesn't look anything like this.

    Is that the Coupe announced at Geneva ?
    It's not 4 door and smaller passenger compartment possibly.
    Don't have access to all the figures.
    But yes it is interesting times

    Is their figures for an E-class 4-door and reasonable boot ? Don't know

    IIRC the 0,24 figure for the base diesel saloon with the narrower tires.

    as Ferrer is saying, there are billions of different shaped cars with similar Cx figures, so I can't see why all hybrids should look the same other than marketing.
