Ambulatory ambalaža

If you are an admirer of clever technology and small vehicles, then the new "concept design" urban car by Nissan is pretty amazingly cool. In the East Ethnian region, though, they might want to think of marketing it under some name other than "Pivo."

Ciao Eric, it will be called "pivo" even in Italy... but it hasn't anything to do with the beer. The name comes from the word "pivot" referring to the skill of its compartment to spin making parking easier! It's very nice, ah :)

Well, Eric, it does look like a can of beer laid sideways on a platform using Legos wheels stolen from the pile of Legorrhea strewn in one's child's room. Wonder if it comes with cup-holders?

I'm kind of more reminded of one of those fruit-flavored Macintoshes than a beer can. But Legorrhea is inspired.

it is cute and indeed toylike before I looked at the comments I was going to say it DID look like a can of beer but darkov's description is WAY better. Some Americans would need to go on a severe diet to ever use this delightful looking vehicle, and I wonder where the semiweekly shopping would fit in this vehicle? One might have a better chance of carrying $50-$150 worth of groceries more easily in a shopping cart on foot! mabye there's a 'pivo-puller' in the works, anyway it's cute and the name is cute. The question I have is does it stand a chance in Hell vs an S.U.V. ?
