Judgemental? Does the product not speak for itself?

But lets remember that not everyone wants a sleek looking beautifully designed car. Some might just want to make something really wild & wacky to stand out and that is what these guys are going to build. Remember that not all people have the same taste.
Fair enough and to my taste these are ghastly and horrendously built. This is the state brand new, imagine a few years down the line. Now why is it "judgmental" to call it out?

Their designs may not be good looking but some of the above comments are in bad taste. We may not support them or even get our cars any where close to their workshop but I must salute the guts of this company to invest money, time and effort to come and display their products at a show patronized by the who's who of the auto industry.
This is Auto Expo, the biggest auto show in the country, where as a small business with limited means like you said, you would want to showcase your best of the best both in terms of design and quality and if this is their best, they do not deserve to be in the business and that is my opinion. I do not think auto enthusiasts are a patronizing lot else someone like Pagani would not exist. Who in their right minds would pay more for a Pagani compared to a Ferrari with all their legacy and history? Its the product that counts and people love underdogs if they are good.

Incorrect. We come down heavily on mediocrity and these are as mediocre as they come. I have been kind enough to use the word Mediocre by the way.

I'm sure Khan took particular pleasure in covering this stall at the Auto Expo.
The e20 surely takes the cake in terms of going overboard with creases and curves, mostly where uncalled for!
