It’s not a competitor in that it’s an EV.

I do love it though. Especially from the front.

Interesting idea. Looks good, probably be a hit if they did produce it. I wonder if they’d do an ICE version. They did say it’s aimed at urban dwellers though, which is pretty much where your driving has to be limited to in order to use an ev now. Sure that will change.

I think the same of the Bronco Sport, but too much plastic cladding. It's so hard to keep it looking nice especially on an off-road oriented design and it just isn't durable. Also much harder to wash up than painted sheet metal. Like, even between the Equinox and the Terrain, I would forego the better interior appointments of the Terrain just to escape the plastic trimmed wheel wells.

The multi-piece fenders on that thing are especially appalling with the breaks and gaps. The towing size mirrors look out of place. I'd also wager the back windows only drop 2/3 of the way down. I'm a little unsure about those wheels and the color choices which could be "easy" fixes for the builder or the buyer.

Imitation being the sincerest form of flattery. It's cool to see other makers trying to copy what they must see as a winner.

It looks like the child of Mini Cooper and Land Rover
