Italian design house Giugiaro is known for some of the automotive world's most elegant designs, but the jury's out on its latest effort.
Designed to be a vision of how large families will get around in the near future, the Clipper features a 2+2+2 seating arrangement and is powered by a pair of electric motors, one on both the front and rear axles.
Each motor produces up to 110kW of power, and there's enough energy storage aboard for a 540km range.
But the Clipper's most interesting features by far are its doors. The front pivot up and forward like a McLaren P1, while the rears are hung gullwing style.
The door opening is huge as a consequence, and the roof and B-pillar are no longer obstructions to passenger entry.
The rear seats - as you can see - don't look especially easy to get into, but the Clipper's compact proportions suggest space may be at a premium there anyway.
Does it matter though? Not at all. The Clipper is strictly a design study, with no plans for Giugiaro or VW to put it into production.
