The success or failure of a car is greatly influenced by its name. Cars are not all about engines, gearboxes, gadgets, safety features and the rest of the lot.

The car you see in these pictures is not taken from any cartoons as it is a proper vehicle that can accommodate three people. It is a rather odd 3-seat convertible and is aimed at those of us with eco-friendly aspirations as it is readily recyclable. This tiny all-electric vehicle is smaller than a Smart [...]
