    I like the looks.
    Shades of Nissan GT-R and that original artists rendering of what they thought Model S might look like

    Looks very nice, but also looks like it's well beyond what I am willing to spend.

    I especially like LED light-pipes as design elements.

    So, this 2+2 larger car, with same range battery, and weight of two motors will go 0-60 in less time than the Roadster. How do they do that? Oh, right, this is a concept.

    Oh, and a range extending engine on top of all that. Somehow I don't believe this.

    Forget the car. I've never seen anything like that crazy trailer!

    Roadster beating hype. Nice looking car but I don't know why they'd muck it up with an ICE. It has plenty of range, (if it's real), and it would perform even better without the ICE anchor on board.

    Is this vehicle operating as a hybrid like my GS 450h?

    It sure wasn't moving too quickly in that vid...

    The Exagon is just a concept for right now but the Roadster is actually is on the road. Just my .02 cents.

    On a more serious note...another EV only justifies the lead that Tesla Motors has established.

    It's looking very promising.

    I like the adjustable regen knob on the dash.

    There is also adjustable pedal and ABS response, and some more I don't understand (I'm not much into cars).
    But they say it's a validation console, so probably it won't be present in the final car. This dashboard seems to be only for testing purpose.

    See here another version of the dashboard :

    IMO, this vehicle is 2x or 3x overpriced -- bland styling, middling numbers for this sector, only okay distance. But, then again, I buy wine and cheese from France, not cars.

    Yes, when I compare it to the kharma (4 seater, range-extended, sporty look), I think it's 2x overpriced. But since exagon builds electric snow racers, performance-wise it can be really good.

    Time will tell, they intend to sell it starting october :)
