Yikes!!! European pricing isn't always simply a matter of currency conversion, but, yes, certainly that pricing is way too dear to make much of an impact (unless the car would qualify for a bunch of state energy incentives, like many electric cars do here in California).

Agree that a retro small-ish SUV would suit the US market much better. I guess we'll see how the Baby Bronco does....

Just for comparison's sake, this is what I meant:

Real deal:


So close, yet so far away

To be fair, the first concept#s 2 door shape with barely any usable rear space, the flat and wide proportions and huge concept car wheels are hardly ever desitned for production; As far as concept to production goes, this is among the better ones (with Lexus LC and BMW i8 still being on the top), but we have seen far worse; And the general clean shape and futuristic detailing is still there....

Agreed that this is still a very decent effort in the grand scheme of things. It kept in line with the spirit of the concept very well.

The only thing that puts me off personally is that it has an extra 2 doors, which I personally wouldn't need and would gladly swap for a sportier look, but I know I'm in the minority here.
