IKEA to Launch Leko Eco-Concept Car Made of Wood and Screws
There's an automotive rumor running around today and it's all about pairing assemble-it-yourself Swedish home furnishings and furniture manufacturer IKEA — with the launch of an eco-friendly compact concept car.
And, no, it probably won't be made of wood and screws.
"La voiture selon IKEA", which is scheduled to be unveiled on March 31, 2009 is allegedly "a modular design which can operate as a coupe or as a convertible, and has the full backing of the World Wildlife Fund France".
Can you take it home in a box and assemble it with a set of allen keys and some wooden pegs? Does it come stocked with Swedish meatballs and lingonberry jam?
