Default The Mirrow Provocator - A revolutionary concept car

Came across this website of a Russian company and their revolutionary concept car The Mirrow Provocator, makes for some interesting reading, including inspiration from the Mercedes-Benz role in the development of the Smart car

Mirrow Provocator - is a revolutionary car, which will be the same length as the Smart Fortwo, but for 4 persons and their luggage.

At the same time, that the car body for more than 50% would be produced of the recycled polymers, and by the inner space, dynamic and safety characteristics Mirrow Provocator could be classified as a business car.

Mirrow Provocator - is not a long car, but not a small one. It's height and width could be comparable with a large SUV. Inside the Mirrow Provocator feels like In the minivan, but the driver's position behind the wheel and the front passenger's position are close to the Mercedes E-class.

The combination of high standards of comfort and safety with the short length of the car would be achieved by using the principals of the aircraft space planning with seats located on both sides of the aisle with increased high of ceiling in the center, and access through the one ordinary size door.

Very Interesting Concept. I only worry that it might be a wide car and may have disadvantages in a Narrow City kind of street spaces.

Very interesting concept!
The idea seems to be to reduce the length of the car, by applying various principals. The only way one can reduce the length is to increase width / height, in order to keep the passengers in relative comfort. Isn't this similar principal applied in sub 4m sedans & SUVs in our country?
Our Nano at the length of 4m could seat 4 people comfortably. This concept is similar, but they have gone further ahead - the length is further reduced to about 2.7m, but height and width are increased to roughly 2m each! The extra width gives them room to provide an aisle, which can be used to access the seats through the rear door!
Such cars are not for the ordinary though! How would a couple have romance in such a car, with no bench type rear seat?!
