Here is a sketch i have made of a single seater vehicle.! I know most of us hate such mini cars are they dont have a character..but u gotto save the city from congestion!!

Its name is UNU (it means in it will be you and only you and no one else). Many people travel to their work alone in cars in which the remaining 4 seates are empty! This is a vehicle to fetch their need! It is powered by a fuel cell. Has enough space for a single person to sit with some place for his accessories like Suitcase..etc. Do reply with your views!!
Pics wont take too long to show up!!

Hey, that's pretty good. The rear looks rather bland. You could do some work on it.

the idea of a single seater car with fuel cell is good for the ozone layer ( environ friendly) and traffic congestion.
the design is also good .

But the sad part these (single seater cars) can never be practical cars for most of us for at least the next 15 years.

the front end and side are really good
Aerodynamics also look neat.
specially the way the wheel arch are designed is good.

Well the front looks very appealing but the rear looks like a santro.

The design seems pretty neat...an observation : the rear windhield is too high as compared to the seating position in front....so IMO the rear needs some rework from a practical standpint too...

The car looks good.

Convertible version of this design may also look good.
