I know new cars, new technology is preferred. I am talking strickly based on the design of the car. The first look. That moment when somebody walks by and sees it. You know what I mean, because we own the Karma. Do you think the EMotion will capture the same glares?

I don't think it does. It looks like the VLF Force 1 in a Sedan. Henrik is stuck on this design and I don't see the vision of this design. The Karma just has those lines and these designs just seem to lack elegance. The front end is to choppy, to many edges.

We only have seen three rendered images of the EMotion, and it's difficult to judge what the entire car would look like based on the information we have so far. I am sure it will be a stunningly beautiful car, but based on what I have seen so far, it's very difficult for me to make a comparison with my beloved Karma.

Prefer Karma, would likely get the Force One over the EMotion. Seeing the two letters EM makes me think of Elon Musk, just like the purported name "Elux"

Latest post from Henrik showing the EMotion being sculpted in clay. Would be great to see a full-sized version.

Another teaser image, this one showing the rear of the EMotion. Looks very sculpted, and I really like the low-key integrated spoiler.

Ditto. Except for the chrome segment under the trunk. There may be practical reason - such as scuff resistance - but less is more, IMHO.

I don't think that's chrome. It looks more like LED backup lights, like in the Karma.

I don't think that's chrome. It looks more like LED backup lights, like in the Karma, just longer.
