These look like a toy version of the Smart Car that came out maybe 10 or 15 years ago. That car died for lack of sales. My guess is this one will die even faster if it ever does come to USA.

There are formidable and costly barriers of entry for the USA. Things like safety, headlight and tail light specifications.

The designers may call this "not a car" - but if it is driven on roads and streets (as opposed to say golf courses or your back 40) it will have to meet the same sets of rules that apply to Ford 150s, Teslas and Toyota Camrys.
