    This car has a good look to it. Be for buying it people would want to know the if the car is for them. they would want to know the good and the bad of the car. If the car can keep you safe. If some one is to buy this car they would want to know all that the car can do.Like if the car is safe for kid to go ride in.

    It has to safe in people might have to test the cars to make sure there good fro people to drive around.And i think new cars can not sell on the market as soon they get out because say if you are famous in you just got a new car.And you just seen on tv a new car just came out you don’t want to go in buy in waste money in you just bought a car.

    The cars would need to have enough gas/energy also it would need a good working engine. This vehicle would need a good look or style on the outside of it so more people would like it or how cool it looks.

    it has to be safe for kids if u have kids, and has to be safe for u. and it has to be ok to drive around on the streets. and plus this car i think wont just sell rite away as soon as u put it on the market. people will just waste there money on a car that just came out and it cost alot of money. so make sure it safe and make sure you dont waste your money on a car like this but it does have a nice look to it.

    we would have to have a lot of money to pay for it then also come up with the money to pay the payment and insurance and we would have to be careful on the road because we might wreck it and it will cause a big amount of money to fix it

    You have to have some money saved up and get another car. You also have to get money to save and bye some gas. Also when your car breaks down you got to have money to get it fixed. So the main thing you got to have is money for a new car.

    Gas is a way to move your car but, its also a way to plollute the enovirment that we live in. Cars are using more gas than u think because an average car uses on a 25mile trip 8-13 gallons of gas. But of corse some cars use less than other and some use more than others .

    Well I mean I’m positive that this car is expensive without a doubt. So that could be a factor as to why I would not want it. Also, that car is just too much for me. I’ll be fine with a normal car. That’s my opinion on the subject.

    As of right now, i don’t think anyone besides Bill Gates or Oprah Winfrey could even purchase such cars. Maybe in the distant future regular middle-classed people could buy these. And of course they would want to buy these type of cars because it is futuristic. People are technologically crazed these days. So, why not buy the most up to date technology to show off?

    i bet that that car could go real far on a full tank. probably over 1300 miles on one tank. also it looks real cool. but one big problem it cost alot probably like Lamborghini times three.I know some people would buy this car. the best reason to buy it is the mileage.i like it because it goes really fast and it can drift but any car can drift but this car just looks cool.

    I think I would buy this car. It looks cool, and I need a car. Plus, It gets 100 miles per gallon. If I had the money to fill the gas tank all the way, I would only need to buy gas 1 time a month, that saves a lot of time. I don’t like the lack of a backseat, though.

    well a car would have to have at least three seats. it would have to have air conditioning and heating. it would have to have seat belts. it would also have to have airbags. it would have to have glove compartments also . after all that is installed in there then it would have to go through crash testing and saftey inspection.

    I think these cars are good ideas. They would have to have good gas mileage. Good engines. Be able to sustain long trips, Or racing on a track or something. Also not only look cool and be a cool car to have but also be safe.

    WELL I MEAN I REALLY DON’T KNOW ABOUT EVERYONE ELSE BUT FOR ME TO BUY A CAR IT WOULD NOT ONLY HAVE TO HAVE GOOD GAS MILEAGE BUT IT WOULD HAVE TO AT LEAST LOOK DEISENT AND HAVE GOOD TIRES A GOOD ENGINE GOOD BRAKES AND I MEAN NOT EVERYONE IS RICH. SO YEAH THERE IS A LOT MORE TO A CAR THAN JUST GOOD GAS MILEAGE.

    Yeah i would like to have this car if its gas mileage is like that. That kind of means it’s a gas saver. Which is a good thing. Now i would get that car because of the look of it, the speed, and the gas saving. The gas saving is the main part because gas is like $4.00. That’s why most people complain about gas stations prices being so high. But most of cars gotta be gas savers not gas eaters. One car i never want is trucks and hummers. Well because they’re gas eaters. Well it depends on which 1.
