Yesterday, an unnamed American car importer sent us the following photos with the comment

Im blind from seeing these interiors! It looks like a cross from an old 70?s car and a childs activity play center!!

Weve blogged about this vehicle before, actually it was one of our first entries on this site. The Shandong Huo Yun still lives on, despite the fact that Daimler Chrysler could swat it with its mighty fist at any notice. We were shocked to hear that the Shandong Huo Yun was still using tried and tested lead-acid batteries rather than the more advanced lithium range of batteries. Lead-acid batteries really do some wonderful things for the environment. We think this car looks okay from the outside, but that interior? Where did Huo Yun get their inspiration from, a 1979 Datsun Sunny? Click the below thumbnails for a bigger picture.

Wow, cool concept an electric city car, but with quite possibly the most hideous interior known to modern day cars.

    Phillip, compare it to the Xiao Gui Zu interior:

    Both are the same price give or take $100USD.

    Good concept, but I think they have poorly initiated the idea.

    They both seem pretty much a copy of the Smart fourtwo.
