Is this the thinking man's Ford?

In a few words, probably not. This little city hatchback is a practical motor and is marketed as the eco-friendly alternative to the petrol driven alternatives such as the Fiat 500, but if it wants to beat the chic looks and great drive the 500 offers, its going to have to go some way. I'll be honest, you're going to spend most of your time watching this video bopping gently to the soundtrack while trying to figure out which end looks more like a cross-eyed fish. It does look practical and adaptable though. We'll see which wins through in the end.
