  • "I've owned a US-built '21 Model 3 for 6 months, and I find the quality very varying. The interior and inside is mostly faultless as far as I can tell, and no worse than previous VW's, Subaru's, Honda's and Audi I've owned. The exterior is not as good though. There's the quite common problems with uneven shutlines and gaps on the front bonnet and the tailgate and the doors on the driver side doesn't really line up. Meanwhile the worst part is probably the rear fenders around the wheels, where there's visible signs from the tooling and stamping of the metal. Thankfully only visible in certain light conditions, but still. That said, even on so called german premium cars, you can tell the color difference between the plastic bumpers and the metal fenders, because matching those are so hard. So I guess nobody's perfect, but Tesla still has some way to go. "

  • "Probably the most staid of the European car brands launches a car called "Rocks-e".  As credible as launching a city car and Mini-competitor called "Adam Rocks" ..."

  • "I'd do like the way they have tried to solve the problem with size, but I'm not sure about the execution. Construction seems too complicated in relation to the problems it's solving, especially the drivetrain and chain."

  • "Imagine having to clean all those small details, corners, surfaces and ribs.. Especially the interior after a ride to the mountains would be a nightmare to clean."

  • "It's kinda of a strange world, when we herald, what we'd otherwise call common sense and actual usability,  something which is sadly missing in contemporary car design. I like the concept, but I can't really get over how they messed up the front fascia. Rather than have a pair of focused eyes and a clear identity, it's all washed out and undefined. "

  • "Haha love this post. Next step is to contact one of these designers and let them tell they're story. What was the design brief and how much creative freedom did they have?"

  • "Very good point, and I get kinda embarrassed hearing the quotes from my fellow designer at Mercedes: ""We were pushing for the elimination of hard work because it makes it clean and modern ... It's a completely different thing to operate. As designers we like simplicity." Seriously, what is this? Car design is already way too full of itself, but when this notion of "good design" is becoming a safety hazard, who's there to correct this obviously dangerous path? It's like a tobacco company starting to sell cigarettes without filter, because "we as designers like simplicity." Cars are already dangerous enough as they are, why and how are they allowed to make them more unsafe?"

  • "It's a shame the detailing is not as simple as the overall concept. The design team seems to have lost focus when they came to lower part of the car, which is really a bit of a mess."

  • "Ah, that makes a difference, but I'm guessing they're still painted, so they will scratch easily? Maybe they should have looked at unpainted body panels in PP as on the new Gogoro Viva scooters?"
    on: What Do You Think of These Design Decisions on Arrival's Electric Delivery Van?
  • "What confuses me most is the bumpers at the front and the back. Having worked as a delivery driver for a bit as I went to design school, I have to say bumpers that actually protect the rest of the car and are sacrificial compared to the metal bodywork important (or maybe I was just a bad driver?!) The painted front side body panels, where there appears to be parking sensors, will take quite some beating, while the black front (I'm guessing unpainted plastic) will only protect in some situations. A feeling  of that style trumped function that also can be seen at the rear where the bumper (plastic?) appears to be painted, which is a really bad idea for such a workhorse of a vehicle. Other than that, I really like the concept and the design."
