New Geely Kandi K23 EV: Redefining "Ugly"

This is actually  quite amazing. 
Geely has been coming up with very nice designs lately. So this is pretty shocking. 
(The patent design at the bottom was an early sign of how wrong things we going to be...)

To be fair, this isn't a "true Geely car". Since it is a partnership with the Kandi company.
(Who is probably responsible for the design)

There have been other Kandi models, like the K12 and K17. (Also based on smaller Geely cars)
This new K23 has a range of about 190 miles and a top speed of about 60MPH. Which I guess is fine for most uses. 

What do you think? Is this too ugly to be cool?

Yikes.... those big steel "teeth"! I think it is perfect car for "Jaws" in the James Bond (The Spy Who Loved Me and Moonraker, played by Richard Kiel..) I think you would have to replace all the seats with just one big one, and he would practically be sitting in the back....

(This is one of those designs that is trying so hard, yet failing so ridiculously, I am tempted to try and "save it" with wild color combinations and wheels in photoshop....)

It's a terrible knock off of the Japanese domestic Toyota Tank:


They are not even good stealing other companies' design. Which goes to show you how lousy the auto companies are.

OMG, the next level if Smart Cars evolved like PokeMon. Right on cue with the angrier look too.
