Evaluation

The coherent proportions gives a sense of usability, and the polyhedral form and bold color scheme embody the dynamism and pleasure required of such a vehicle. The manufacturer's eagerness to appeal to users also comes from the aspect of practicality since the fact that this is a fun vehicle is demonstrated by the use of materials which have been chosen in consideration of recyclability and their ability to provide a low price.
