Perhaps you'll find the resemblence quite striking, but Mirrow Provocator and Smart Fortwo are quite different.
For one thing, Provocator - despite being of the same lenght as Smart Fortwo - is bigger and more spacious, so it offers enough space for four passengers and their luggage.
Alexander Malyshev, founder of the Mirrowcars and the man behind the company's creative solutions and design, classifies Mirrow Provocator as »not a long car, but not a small one,« designed to offer maximum safety by including anti-lock braking system (ABS), traction control (ASR), electronic stability control (ESP), electronic brakeforce distribution and electronic differential lock, up to 12 airbags, parking system and rear-view camera, hill brake control and hill-start assist system, and a protection system preventing accidental opening of the evacuation doors.
One of the most interesting things about this car is that it was designed as if someone was planning the interior of an aircraft. Unlike standard cars, th driver and passengers enter Provocator through one ordinary size door (170x60 cm), located at the rear side, while the side doors are only intended for the emergency evacuation from the car. Over 50% of the body of the car is made of lightweight and inexpensive recycled polymers.
Mirrow Provocator will be available with a turbocharged three-cylinder petrol or diesel engine up to 1.5 liters, providing acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in less than 8.7 seconds. The maximum speed will be forcibly limited at 140 km/h. Hybrid and electric versions will feature powerful batteries, offering a range of 350-400 kilometers.
There will also be special versions of Mirrow Provocator available: electric version is intended for a carsharing system, normal or lengththened up to 3,4m (6 seats) version for the taxi, without rear seats for a mini food-trucks or cars logistics.
Developers suggest the retail price will start at about 3500 - 4500 EUR for the basic model.
