    It looks kinda weird to have all that empty space if they’re fixed… maybe they recede into the hole behind them?

    I don’t know, Soliad really doesn’t fit the type of car this is.
    I think Ibishu Wigeon fits way better

    Name seems fine to me, I don’t see an issue with it. Expect it shares parts with the pigeon though due to the name similarity.

    It definitely shares the three-lug layout, so maybe they have the same suspension or the Wigeon is on a shortened Pigeon frame.

    I'm not talking about Ibishu, as that is a fictional brand. The Widgeon is loosely based off the Bond Bug, which is a British vehicle.

    It seems to make sense to me as a variant of the Pigeon, especially with the reused parts, etc., so unless they're planning on rolling out that new UI we're all waiting for (very patiently of course ;) ), how do you guys think this will work? Will it be a separate vehicle with many of the same parts (sorta like the D-series/Roamer), or same vehicle with different name (sorta like the FCV platform)?

    Unless this has a Pick-up and Van version then no. Also, the Pigeon actually looks newer than the Widgeon.

    The D-series and Roamer were in one slot early on, the Pigeon and Wedgeon might be the same for some time.

    Given its inspirations both being cars from the 70s, it'd be a predecessor if anything.

    Editing my post to only say "variant" instead of "second generation or variant" :D

    We can't really say anything about the Pigeon's model years... Since this seems to at least borrow bits from the Pigeon or be a full on derivative, it's probably going to be a LeGran/Wendover situation. Which means at that time the Pigeon may get facelift options, and IRL counterparts have model years all over the place.

    Dunno, seems like too good an opportunity to do just a Legran-Wendover thing, as those two are barely related with the exception of powertrain.

    This is the most flabbergasted and excited i have been about an update since i first saw a vivace teaser- but the vivace didn't make me laugh. This does. This, this gives me a childhood sense of glee i haven't seen in a long time.

    I love it.

    I don’t see them being put in the same vehicle selector, bodies and probably other things are different. D Series and Roamer did share a vehicle selector, but seeing as the roamer got its own I don’t see them doing the same with the Wigeon

    I love it! Although, the only disappointment is the fact that is Ibishu branded, whilst it could have been a weird American-British collaboration (It does take those design styles from Citicar, which is an American electric car from 1970s and Bond Bug, which is a British wedge micro-car from the same period) that could have brought at least a new brand or/and country to the existent vehicle roster. Hopefully, developers will change it, as just by changing the name and designing the logo, you could turn this into a British car, especially as it is already left-hand drive.
