Clive Sinclair was ahead of his time

I’ve just discovered this beautiful vehicle hailed as the new low-emission compact urban vehicle. It’s been designed at the Technical University of Berlin and, admittedly, it’s rather beautiful. It’s called the CLEVER which is supposed to stand for ‘Compact Low Emissions Vehicle for Urban Transport’. So they may be good designers but they can’t spell.

I can’t help feeling that it reminds me of a high profile failure from 20 years ago. Maybe the Sinclair C5 just needed a roof. And someone cool driving it.
