It has added side-view mirrors to the windows. The car was not driveable because it did not have a power train.

Awards

The design has been characterized by some observers as "hot, sexy, cute and practical." "The AMC Amitron had almost 50 years ago all that is still considered indispensable for an electric car if it is supposed to succeed: a decent range, low weight, and a jaunty look."
