A Car Designed by Women

Volvo Reveals Car Designed by Women and ends up with car requiring Oil change only once every 31,000 miles (~ 50,000 km).
The vehicle doesn't have a hood — the whole front end lift ups for easy access by a mechanic, since the designers didn't envision doing much engine work themselves. You fill up the tank using a roller-ball valve opening, like many race cars have, because it's simpler and less messy than removing a gas cap.

The engine is a low-emission, gas-electric hybrid.

Gull-wing doors allow easy access to space behind the driver's seat. The bottom of the rear seats fold up, similar to theater seating, providing more storage space. The car also has dirt-repellant paint and glass, exchangeable seat covers with matching carpet and sensors that guide the driver for easier parking

I would love to get my hands on this one.
