    Good, so far. I would be interested to see what the rest of the lineup looks like.

    I'm wondering about the first city car. Is it one of the two people, one behind the other type of vehicles? I just ask because of the size of the door and the narrowness of the cabin.

    Quite an interesting offering!

    Yeah that would be pretty close to my target. Small cars with good gas mileage.

    Yep, I tried to shape it into a tandem small car with a door that would probably flip up gull-wing style.

    Thanks for the comments!

    Re: CD Brand

    What would be the positioning of this brand in the GM hierarchy?

    Small, fuel efficient models in the vein of Geo, or something else?

    I envision the basis for this brand as small, fuel efficient, and a notch below Chevy in size and price. Currently, there would be some overlap with the Aveo and Spark, but these two cars could be absorbed into the brand. Something like fuel efficient cars that would be perfect for tight city streets. So yeah, the brand is pretty similar to Geo.

    Looks a bit too much like a Dodge. Still cool, non-the-less. And it's good to see you using different media (drawing, chopping) to create your lineup. Nice idea.

    Re: CD Brand

    the idea behind the brand is sound. Gm could use a few dedicated eco cars to up their image and compete directly with the likes of the prius, germany's tdi's, or maybe even upscale models like the lexus hsh2h50hh hybrid.

    I like where these are going

    Thanks rrwWasHere. I hadn't really even thought about taking the brand upscale like you have suggested. Also, a prius fighter would be a great addition to the lineup.
