The Daisy, a 'clean' vehicle, is designed for the crowded roads of many modern metropolises, particularly in the Solomani Rim area. The vehicle meets the seemingly basic terran need for a private vehicle, while bowing to the realities of crowded, polluted streets. The strategy is to make these so small, slow and uncomfortable that mass transit becomes an attractive alternative.
