Since 95% of the cars in the city tool around with only one person in them, this two-seat concept car was designed to minimize wasted space. A carbon fiber body keeps the Peugeot OMNI strong without adding weight.
Implications - The Peugeot OMNI is a fantastic car for both is eco inventiveness and its aesthetics. The hot little car looks like it just fell right out of a sci-fi movie. Do you think that this car or one like it will catch on any time soon in urban areas?
