    That Cube is the ugliest thing Ive ever seen. How did that get made?

    Yeah they are pretty ugly too. Those creepy back windows. When behind a Cube it's like you are just waiting for someone to pop up out of the roof.

    The Cube mostly irritates me with that weird asymmetry, and I think the Nissan Juke is as bad or worse. It's the back end of the Elio that's throwing me--looks like a tippy canoe. But I drive an old lady car in the name of practicality, so it's not like aesthetics would stop me. I'm more interested to see how it holds up in a wreck, how it handles, and whether or not it ever makes it to market.

    As for comfort, fitting into a car has never been something I've had to worry about, but I found this on the company's Facebook page:
    The question of internal space keeps coming up, particularly head room and leg room. We designed the vehicle for the "95% male", which is approximately a 6' 1" 220 lb person. As we mentioned in some individual questions, we have had a lot of larger people sit in and drive the prototype and, without exception, they exit the vehicle with what we call the "Elio Smile".

    Beats me. Have you ever watched a big man get into a Cube? You wait in anticipation his feet will pop out of the bottom and he'll yell "Yabba Dabba Do"!
