What started as a slippery collaboration between engineering teams from both Fiord Motor Company and Renauld Motors, had firmed up to become a strong partnership on a new Hybrid Mini, marketed towards women.
The two-person, egg-shaped Hybrid proves to be a cross between Renauld's popular Clia model and Fiord's Torus, and will be offered in a single color with limited options to help keep production costs down. Production labeled as the "Cliatorus", this small demure passenger vehicle will be sold only in Pink with glossy trim, and is considerably smaller than most standard vehicles. The smaller footprint fits the economic and ergonomic needs of most women, though field testing proves that men find it difficult to locate, even when the Cliatorus is pointed out by their women owners.
Other anti theft features include touch-sensitive door handles with motion sensitive locks. Should a would be thief try to work the door button or the keyhole too fast, the Cliatorus immediately shuts down all electrical response systems. Continued abrasive behavior with the same button systems, trigger an automatic roll over feature, emitting noxious gas towards the perpetrator. In short, the Fiord and Renauld engineers have designed the Cliatorus' entry and engine starting mechanisms to respond only to a woman's sensitive touch.
Not to abandon the men's sports car market, Fiord is also partnering with Fiot Motors, mixing features of Fiord's Mustang with Fiot's Punto. The V8, two-seat, black on black sports car will be known as the "Puntang".
