@ Durango Dude,
a drunken monk with five people(or 7, who knows) on board sounds dangerous... floorboard is the ideal place for the motor then.
And sir you are quite right, these quirky concepts look good and attract crowds only in the expo, before bringing them on the roads, within the stipulated cost, they have to meet many requirements..which would be difficult for some of them to meet. As rightly said by you, one of them is the Honda. Jazz is so pricey, its not setting the sales charts on fire, so i guess companies will be more cautious before launching a new product in the market in such a competitive ambience.
