people either like a design or they don't. i don't see why concept cars can't make it to market 'as is'.
You're assumptions do not equate. You don't want the car to be expensive, because no one will pay "˜good' money for a Ford (contrary to the fact that the Ford GT sold like hotcakes), yet you want them to include the upwards-opening doors (impractical and expensive), LEDS (expensive and not easy to find replacements; at least at this moment), and the interior (which, with all its metal trim is expensive and really doesn't look all that comfortable).
I see no reason why Ford can't make a car that looks just like this, with the same dimensions as the Ford Fusion, but using normal lights, normal doors, and a normal interior. Utilizing a 4-Cylinder and a V6 as available power plants, plus either RWD or AWD and placing the engine behind the wheels. Seriously, if they make it the right way (a-la Honda or Toyota) I see no reason why a car like that can't be a success.
