One of the key points of iStream is that it's cheaper than a traditional stamped steel body-in-white.That's great and all, but how much is it gonna cost?
One of the key points of iStream is that it's cheaper than a traditional stamped steel body-in-white.
Incidentally, iStream means "Stabilised Tube Reinforced Exo-frame Advanced Manufacturing". Whew.
It has not. So far iStream's most prominent uses have been for a flat-pack truck designed for the developing world, which I believe isn't yet in production, the Yamaha Motive.e city car revealed at the Tokyo show a few years back, which isn't in production, and the new TVR, which also isn't yet in production. As a means of not producing vehicles iStream is untouchable.has this actually been proven in an industrial-scale manufacturing capacity?
