    I hope it's more like a Mercedes B-Class (since TM have a partnership with Mercedes ...)

    Well, there are design solutions in "small size" range, which do not sacrifice 2 doors.

    Honda Fit

    Nissan Versa

    Toyota Auris / Yaris

    The latter duo also has sedan versions. Of course, might as well list:


    It all depends on what market segment TM will target with Blue Star.

    Think big

    With all the cabin space options opened up, a Blue Star could be very avante garde looking. For example:

    Hi DAL

    Great images, although Tesla have enough of a tough time trying to get significant numbers of peoples' heads round their technology, so unfortunately I think their styling is likely to stay this side of "reasuringly familiar".

    Aptera are definitely more open to radical styling

    Agreed. The Roadster has analog gauges, a 3 position switch in the form of a "stick shift" and the required digital screen hidden down by the driver's knee. No high tech leaning there. The model S is a bit more future-forward but it is more of a natural progression than some mega-leap like the disruptive technology under the hood.

    The LEAF is now a direct competitor of BlueStar. What might TM's strategy for wider market be? A "Performance" family sedan?

    absolutely, the BlueStar must be Fit for "Autobahn" (Highway), 100mph+x, by 100miles Range
    otherwise it's a city-car, or simply to Green....

    I'm still thinking the BlueStar will be a two door. Franz said he would have preffed the Model S as a two door. A smaller car with an amazing design will need to be a two door.
