    It has vent, so I think there could be some bike engine basically. Honda cbr 599cc would fit for example. The question is that if the chassis is swappable with pigeon. And if that means the pigeon superbuild is more than just possible.

    To qualify as a kei car between 1976 and 1990, the Wigeon would need:
    • No longer than 3.2 meters
    • No wider than 1.4 meters
    • No taller than 2.0 meters
    • Engine no larger than 550 cc (either two- or four-stroke, no power limit)
    • Warning chime above 50 mph (80.5 km/h; I would forgive the devs for not bothering with this one)
    From what I can see, the Wigeon easily fits into this box, in fact it looks even smaller assuming those lines on the ground are square meters. Few kei cars have ever used less than the maximum allotted length and width - more recent kei cars tend to follow a "tall box" format, maxing out all three dimensions:



    And even the Autozam AZ-1 makes full use of the 3.3/1.4 meters (kei cars got an extra 10 cm in 1990):



    Were the Wigeon to be sold as a microcar but not a kei car, it would be subject to taxes that larger kei cars could avoid. And if it were simply sold as a normal kei car, it would not be competitive with those larger vehicles. The only way the Wigeon would make sense would be as a "sports kei car," optimized not for space efficiency but for driving enjoyment. At the same time, that is really the only kind of kei car that would make sense from a gameplay standpoint as most are actually quite boring to drive.

    Wait, how many cylinders does a bond bug have? We could maybe have a new engine sound! ( If it's 1 or 2 cylinders)

    I personally think that looks like a car from back to the future

    It's probably the metallic paint combined with the odd design - if it were matte I think it would look more realistic (not that I mind of course :D )

    2 things
    1. as baseless speculation, there will be a high performance motorbike engine swap because there is a Bond Bug IRL that has a Hayabusa engine in it.
    2. For genuine speculation, I guess the Pigeon remaster is up next due to the Widgeon being also from Ibishu and also a small car that could be powered by the i3 diesel and the 600(?) cc engine (which also needs a revamp bc internals aren’t strong enough for maximum possible rpm.)

    Bloody hell its so bad i love it. I Will crash the worm ( my nickname for it ) Lots and lots.

    I think we have the Covet ( common 80s subcompact car )
    Autobello ( Common eco car of the 50s/60s ) and even kinda into the 70s.


    Then from Japan we have the Miramar a Japan car when they started to become common in other markets.

    But we never had a CHEAP car for the sake of being cheap.

    OK we had the bird ( pigeon ) But that is a Car that No offense felt rushed. And dated. I mean it is fun and i do love it but never had a wow factor to it. Other then 3 wheels. BTW i miss the belt drive for the wheel ;)


    BUT this bond bug worm will be HOT.

    Light wright ( wayyyy Less then my W211 IRL... Hell way less then my sisters Yaris )
    So depending what engines we get. Should be hell fun.

    It will be good to get some kinda crapp 4 door version ( imo )


    So this is that i think it may come with ( again no way of knowing )
    Base model, i dunno with a 20/30 HP engine. SLOW Basic with a cheaper range of seats. Plastic with a cover on them. And a 3 speed manual box.

    Mid range model with Better seats. A 30/40 HP engine. 2ND Dash with a glove box this time. Thats about it. Maybe a 4speed over the 3 speed.

    luxury Same as mid range. But with better seats. Better looks, MAYBE some auto with a 2 speed. For super slow drive :( ( YUCK )

    Sport. With the big 40 HP engine with a small supercharger. Lower springs. Better steering make it Almost fast. But very go kart like to drive/


    As for eco models.


    I will love to see a Diesel of some sort.
    1 For normal UK japan Markets.
    But a 2nd Engine ( Diesel ) For Indian and such markets. with a 10ish HP engine. Horrid.


    And the much loved idea of a EV of some sort. I Think this will be awesome seeing we got new Evs,

    Who not a shitty EV from when EV was Nothing to worry about .



    Other then that. Each car brings in something new to the game.

    I love the idea to make it maybe Both a land thing and a boat ;) :)

    My 2 cents:
    - Definitely not pigeon based
    - I love the name, keeps the bird theme whilst also humorously rhyming
    - I believe this will undoubtedly have an eclectic powertrain (Either standard or optional)
    - The model looks fantastic

    my ideas:
    JDM:
    early = 360cc era
    late = 550cc era with a nicer interior

    Export (UK & AUS):
    detuned pidgeon 600 engine
    regular pidgeon engine
    10-15hp electric (UK only)
