    On GM and the Volt, isn't this the sort of thing Toyota went through with the Prius. They introduced ther hybrid with modest success until they hit on success with quirky styling. It always irks me when analysts pronounce something a dud and the read between the lines is " Stop wasting money and go back to what you do best ". Another reason to dislike Wall Street I suppose as quarterly profits trump innovation and development.

    That is one ugly concept car. Looks like some 1990s futurism that birthed that one crazy Corvette concept, the CERV III. I don't normally get joy from failure but I do kind of like the hideous styling hole Mercedes is digging themselves into.

      Oh, I get it! It's supposed to be a car! I was wondering if it was a radar detector or a VHS tape rewinder!

    Promaster with a diesel sounds like a natural. One wonders why it wasn't launched with this option.
