Hopefully the cage they claim is in there would be sufficent enough, still wouldn't want to be in one and get hit by a semi with the push bars ment for hitting things like Deer, Cattle, Kangaroo, ect!

Anything with 3-wheels is technically a motorcycle in most states, so it's safer than the usual motorcycle in a collision. These things shouldn't pretend to be replacements for real cars, and there's no way that physics can allow a tiny vehicle to be as safe as a battering-barge-SUV. Get real.

Chuck, The Dale reminds me a little bit of the DeLorean, on the front, of course.

Interesting.

Safety wise, I can see them being slighly safer than one of the 3 wheeled things they call motor cycles, and this thing has a heater  and airbags.

 

I kinda like it. and if it's all it's made out to be . I'd own one

I have always liked the Tango as it is fast, but, it is so bloody expensive ....

What interests me about this is the design possibility of turning any American car design into a three-wheel vehicle like this.

Like, say a '60 Ford? Here's mine:

an enclosed can-am. a nice commuter vehicle but not practical for me. I need something with hauling capacity. as for price I find it very affordable there are not many (if any) motorcycles under seven grand.
