it looks like that was pretty slow, does anyone know the actual speed in those videos? They are clearly in slow motion.

Those things will gather dust in Europe! Eu consumer really researches products before they buy.

Article was messed up, price was in pounds, countries where it will be sold is in Euro's.

Looks like they have made several design errors. The front is supposed to crush and absorb energy, but it looks like there is not energy absorbing counter measures. Everything gets driven into the passenger compartment. Never be allowed to sell in the US.

Why?

Cheap.

Yeah...that's about the scariest fricken thing I've ever seen. Can't believe they're permitted to put it on the market, even in Europe.

They are actually pretty smooth. The downside is they are kinda slow and charge doesn't last long. Perhaps they need an on-board grease burning generator.

Speaking of the steering wheel..... Did they use Peterbilt as a supplier? IT'S HUGE!

I've never seen crash video w/ the dash and steering column moving that much. It looked like nothing was secured in the car, seats moved, dash moved, steering column kept on moving.
