Child car

Maybe they went too far trying to save energy, and forgot that full sized adults would be driving these things?

After the reputation of "smart phones" which are unfortunately much smarter then their owners, maybe their PR department should rethink their strategy? Or think about their strategy? (Do they have a strategy? I've seen 0 ads!)

While I do care about the environment, I don't want to look like a child when being run over by a SUV! And I want much better odds!
