Moonbat Tech: Folding Car

Once again moonbats use auto design to assault the dignity of those politically incorrect enough to drive:

A tiny revolutionary fold-up car designed in Spain’s Basque country as the answer to urban stress and pollution was unveiled Tuesday before hitting European cities in 2013.

The “Hiriko,” the Basque word for “urban,” is an electric two-seater with no doors whose motor is located in the wheels and which folds up like a child’s collapsible buggy, or stroller, for easy parking.

The Hiriko can’t go more than 75 miles without recharging. Progressive authoritarians will be particularly pleased that its “speed is electronically set to respect city limits.”

Better still would be a car that only lets us go where the masterminds have decided we should. But I’m forgetting: that’s the point of light rail boondoggles.

If you want to see the Hiriko fold up, just drive one around until you get rear-ended by a truck while waiting in traffic.

Hiriko
Even dumber than a Smart car.

On a tip from Winston Smith.

    Doubles as a coffin for the driver, saving at least $6,000 at today’s casket prices. Bargain.

    Spain is so screwed.

  • StanInTexas

    Saves on ambulance and EMT costs as well, as all you will need to remove the driver from the wreckage is a sponge and a wet-wipe!

    I decided to go Green this year…. bought a used 1995 GMC 1500 pickup with a 6.5Liter Diesel. It pollutes a hellofalot less than a Smart Car or this POS and pound for pound get better fuel economy. I don’t have to dispose of dangerous Lithium batteries after a few years and don’t have to charge it up using electricity from coal fired power plants.

    No thanks. I’ll take my non-folding dream car over that Lego-mobile any day.

    A real car.

    Hey, Stymie, how long do you think that car would last parked on a street in Philly?

  • Hot Tips

    I was gonna get one, for an emergency and
    keep it in the glovebox of the Tahoe.

  • Stymie

    About ten minutes longer than a bicycle.
    (the time it takes to figure out what it is) :-)

  • Max & Eric

    I love these things I think every libtard should have one. that way when I hit one in my F150 4×4 I won`t have to “feel bad”

  • Max & Eric

    Do they come with an Obama sticker, or a rainbow sticker

  • James McEnanly

    Aside from getting two people around in a limited area, what good is it? I don’t see any space for cargo, so grocery shopping is out. You couldn’t take the family on vacation, and unless you work for Ringling Brothers, car pooling is out.
    When we Americans designed a folding electric car, we came up with this

  • Max & Eric

    does it have a gun rack in the back window,

  • StanInTexas

    Max & Eric, if you were to hit one of this with your F-150, I doubt you would feel anything.

  • Spider

    It personifies the leftist mentality of, do as we say, not as we do, since they’re all driving MB’s, Bently’s, Porches, Ferraries, etc.

    They will have us all living in caves if we continue to be dumb enough to listen.

  • donb

    Reminds me of these.

  • Shannon

    Max, I bet it comes with a “Coexist” sticker.

  • V328

    If it flew it’d be George Jetson’s ride.

  • Bob Roberts

    I still can’t see where they get off calling it a “smart car” – every time I see one of them driving one I laugh out loud because they look, frankly, really stupid!

    The duplo clown car come to life.

    And this folding car is, as noted, even worse!

    I lived in Spain for three years. I wouldn’t be caught dead in one of these, but I’m sure (as some note, above) many who actually use one will.

    Over in Spain traffic laws work like this: It’s not illegal unless there’s a cop around to catch you.

    Wilberforce says:

    I got me a car, it’s big as a whale and it’s about to set sail!

    “speed is electronically set to respect city limits.”

    It’ll need to go @ 75mph in Montreal then. The cops don’t tolerate slackers in that burg.
