I would say it also needs a redesign of the seats to make it more comfortable for passengers to get in/out without any support. If you will notice in our current cars we always have to hold onto the door to enter and exit the car.

I can already see people sticking something in to prevent the door from closing. Reason - makes it airy/looks adventurous.

One of the earlier BMW Z series cars had a similar door concept. Remember JC displaying the use of the doors.

Well something new and interesting for sure. However it could be a disaster in case of accidents or system failure.

On second thought, how long car manufactures going to stick with same old "door on hinges" structure.

Time to give something new :-)
