Eigne, the Lotus with an electric engine at each wheel

Lotus has developed a Hot Wheels version of its cars that is so gorgeous it should be mass-produced. The designer David Fearnley must have searched for inspiration on that toy to conceive a grown-men toy that is as fun as the smaller one, the Eigne. The best part of it is that, with this toy, no one will ever be able to accuse the driver of playing dirty. This concept is an electric car.

With its steering wheel at the center of the cabin, the Eigne is a 1+3 vehicle, what means it could carry three adults, counting with the driver, and a small child behind the front seat, what is perfectly possible considering the car does not have to reserve a space for the engine. There are four of them, one at each wheel, a solution that is considered to be the future of automobiles and that has already been presented by Volvo Recharge and the British Lightning GT.

It would be nice to have such a car on the streets, but this is very unlikely to happen. In other words, the Eigne will most certainly remain as the Hot Wheels car that it resembles so much. Check the video:
