An employee of Japan's Electronic Vehicle maker Yodogawa, poses in its EV (electric vehicle) car "Meguru" at the Electronic Automotive Technology Expo in Tokyo. The lithium-ion battery powered three-wheeler features a flooring made from real bamboo and fan-shaped doors made from Japanese wood pulp paper.

One Tokyo downpour and those doors will be gone.

Looks like Yodogawa hasn't got a design department yet.

That is the most ridiculous thing I have ever seen. What happen to the creativeness of the Japanese people? I guess it went down the tubes with people trying to create things that makes no sense at all.

Cool looking car. I see it is built for wide-stance males.

I think it's great. They should sell them to the Japan Post Office for deliveries. It would be fun to drive one.

It's basically a Japanese EV version of a Thai Tuk Tuk. While the design is OK, it still doesn't look practical for production.

Farmboy: If it had doors that provided some real protection and the sides weren't so exposed it might actually be a good vehicle for stop and go work situations.

I hope that they will not replace rickshaws with that car, can't see any nice legs from it.

Is this an early April Fools` joke? Japan is infamous for the wacky and the wierd - but this one takes the biscuit. The wierdest thing I have seen for years. "Global Warming" gone totally through the barrier or lunacy.

I know I can be critical sometimes, but this...thing is not only ridiculous, it's an absolute monstrosity. Adjectives fail me >_<

I can't help myself. I can't find anything aesthetically pleasing about it. Even the showroom woman seems to be staring at it as if to say "You can't be serious".

what a waste of time and money. why not just make a t-shirt that says "look @ me!!!". so much cheaper and less labor-intensive.

What ya'll don't understand is that, when those fans fold out vertically, this baby can FLY!

Usually cars are presented with beautiful women. This picture is something different.

I'm surprised no one else has noticed that the frame of the vehicle appears to be painted with the same lacquer they use all over Buddhist temples.

I guess most of you have never been to the Tokyo Motor Show. This design is no more outrageous than some of the prototypes that are exhibited there.

If they had lightcycles in the Edo Period this is what it would probably look like.
