When you think of the auto industry, there are two names that surely will not come to mind. DOK-ING and Croatia. The last time most Americans thought of Croatia was during the early-1990s during the implosion of Yugoslavia. DOK-ING was born during that time and has spent the past 19 years developing and building robotic de-mining equipment.
With so many debuts at the recent Geneva Motor Show, our crew somehow missed this DOK-ING XD. The Croatians have decided to take a stab at the burgeoning electric vehicle market and created this concept for a diminutive three-seat electric commuter. Apparently, there are only a limited number of ways to spin the styling of such small people pods but this combination of Toyota iQ and Smart Fortwo doesn’t look bad.
DOK-ING is looking for some partners to start series production, but in the meantime says it would be happy to produce more examples on a build-to-order basis.
