That suggests you've never had to deal with a flat tyre in the rain with a rear mounted spare!The blue one and Chinese versions are 😲 awesome. Wish EU was more lax about modifications, having a spare on the back is so nice.
The spare on the Chinese Yeti was on a separate frame, hinged to one side. So that could be moved aside, allowing the regular tailgate to be lifted normally. Not unlike a few other cars with rear mounted spare wheels. My old Isuzu Trooper had the 2/3 width rear door side hinged, With the spare mounted on that.You need Arms like popeye to lift the tailgate,
A moot point really, as concept cars aren't usually slated for production.Would you buy one if it went into production today
Not just prototype? My understanding was all the series 1 production Espace were actually built by Matra, using the Renault platform. Possibly the series 2 as well? Those were still fibreglass superstructure.Ranchera body aft of the B pillar and the roof were fibre glass and it had only FWD. Matra later used the same build method for the prototype Espace.
