Uniqueco working on rugged 4x4 and MPV built from plastic

 To German auto consultant Uniqueco, it sounds like the future. The company has designed two different models that use lightweight construction centered around plastic shells.
Upon first glance, Uniqueco's eFROOG multipurpose vehicle (MPV) looks like a jeep or a smaller, two-seat OHV. What that rugged look conceals is the fact that the vehicle is made from plastic. The plastic body panels are secured to an extruded aluminum passenger safety cell and zinc-coated steel frame.
