    Ah, what might have been. Thanks again, Eaton.

    Yeah, Eaton is a real son of a Smurf*. (* The Smurf language might come useful as a substitute to some words we shouldn't said)

    The CCV was only intended for "developing countries." Today it would make a great neighborhood electric vehicle. With 48V electrical technology installed, a next-gen CCV would outperform the original petrol one. It would be a great Twizzy competitor.

    I'll take the Pronto Spyder with a battery electric drivetrain. The plastics technology in the CCV and the Plymouths mentioned in that article beats Tesla's Lego brick construction any day of the week.
