Since many until recently did not realize spd can be grey in various ways and that Agp invisiblinds is Spd everyone can use reminders. Yes, I replied to him but the post is for everyone.

Some of you all are so funny. You think every shareholder should be a "yes" person. If that was the case this country would still be under British control and you would be eating crumpets and sipping tea.

What looks familiar? I missed something here. I see a glass roof. Is the design similar to other SPD. Just wondering what you see that I missed.

What's similar is the way the SPD is framed (in black), like a picture in a frame. Here's the SLK's roof.



Here's the Mustang:

Doesn't appear to be SPD if the description by techcrunch.com is accurate. "The panoramic glass roof has special coating with UV protection that helps the interior stay cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter". Unless the special coating they refer to is SPD and they don't know any better. I was hoping Ford's collaboration with Rivian would lead them to using SPD. Maybe they still will.


Ford also invested $500 million into EV startup Rivian, which will see the two companies collaborate on an electric vehicle built on Rivian’s platform.

It was a stretch as nobody has ever mentioned FORD. I have about 10 makes on my list that has been mentioned or linked to SPD and Ford was never one of them.

Continental used a Ford at, I think, their first CES w/SPD.

Isn't this a Ford?

Continental used that Ford to develop the controller. I actually think they used a brand of car that was not developing SPD such as Ford so as to not tick off the manufacturers. I dont know if Ford is or not but not ever a mention.

Mustang - doesn't look like SPD based on reports. Question is why not? That is a huge glass roof. If SPD is not needed in a roof that big, then it is a luxury item by definition. So then the question is - can they get the price down to a point that someone buying a $40K - $50K car would splurge on it. And if so, how much will RFI actually make on it.
This contrasts with the Uniti car. Does that work only in certain locations in Europe due to CO2 laws?

Personally, I don't like the look of the car anyway. A far cry from the uniqueness of the previous models.

Waiting on news from Panasonic and the advertising market.
