  • While this might be five steps forward in terms of current tech, its aesthetics take Indian automotive design back by two decades. It is a visual atrocity, the lack of any cohesive surfaces and the constant curvature breaks are an affront to the entire segment of surface transport, or anyone with eyes for that matter. None of the design cues have any functional value and serve only to fuel some egomaniacal octogenarian who thinks he is still relevant as a designer. ARAI should give this zero stars, purely for its utter lack of proportion and the tone-deaf visuals that it brings. This is how China pulls the rug out from under us, by helping us make these-these miniature eye sores. The founders must be surrounded with yes men, (that’s the worst kind of people to have around you, btw)- to not have had anyone tell you otherwise. Good lord, there are at least 5 design colleges in India that have freshmen who could’ve interned and done a better job. Forget India, at least 5 design colleges in Gujarat alone!
