Very nice. Not sure if this is off-road capable or not. Wonder who will be the first to propose an off-road capable EV (with range extender).

I really like this. Would be amazing to see this in production form as the next Trax.

They can style cars like this and yet they choose to poop out uglies like the Equinox?

This is sensational looking.

There are so many things to like about this design...

My personal favorite is the tail lights transitioning to the side with dual lines/creases.

There isn't much that needs to change to make this production ready.... I hope they do... to swizzles point - this is quantum yearsahead of the equinox

Except Lexus was there 5 years ago, and this is still a concpet car. I'd certainly welcome if a lot translates to a production car, but especially "flamboyant surfaces" and details are usually the first to go in the process of product ionizing....

True.... BUT I would argue that many of the Toyota/Lexus "concepts" were kind of ugly. The only exception was the LS concept, and that got totally lost in the translation to production (although it was the entire rear half of the DLO that changed).

I don't know about size (and frankly, I don't care), but instant association looking at this was "Toyota C-HR wannabe"... I just can't decide which one of them is more generously "endowed" with a mess of holes, sharp-edged lines and corners... may be (because of its eventual size) this one seems a bit "cleaner", but still...
shame though, because (and like C-HR) it has really nice silhouette...
