    oh dear!
    Manufactures need to make cars look how the public expect so they feel “normal” although I would prolly own one at the right price!

    The zebra look on the XEBRA is a bit much. I don’t think I would want one even if it was a great value with excellent range, etc.

    I agree, if EV manufacturers really want the general public to buy that’s not a good way to convince them.

    I would not buy a zebra because it is 3 wheels. I feel if i were to place my wife in there and she got in an accident she would not survive. If some one came out with an EV the size of a 96-97 Nissan 200SX – Sentra or the 96-99 corrllla I would not hesitate to buy one. I do not think that it would be that much more expensive to make a ar slightly larger then what they have since they have to go thru the same steos they all ready have in place now.

    Maybe if I was tooling around a retirement village or a small city something like the zebra might make sense…although styling doesn’t seem to be their forté.

    It was over ten years ago when I was there, so memory is a bit vague, but the city of Zermatt in Switzerland doesn’t allow combustion vehicles and has similar little electric vehicles running around as cabs and delivery wagons.
