Re: Beijing: Ford "Start" Concept

sounding like it's largely based on the ^ video:

Ford says its Asian concept Start shows design agenda - FREE PRESS
Posted: May 20, 2010
BY BRENT SNAVELY
...J Mays, Ford's group vice president of design and chief creative officer, said the Ford Start minicar illustrates Ford's design priorities...

"What we did ... was create a car with warmth and charm and a car that you can bond with," Mays said.

"People purchase products because they are prepared to spend part of their life with it," Mays said. "It is an emotional relationship."

"If you look at the design language on the new Explorer you will see a connection ...with kinetic design," Mays said...

Re: Beijing: Ford "Start" Concept

That is a really cool concept car. I mean it's not a Mustang, but it's nice. My only issue is how small it is, but I guess they are going for fuel efficient.
