Ikea Leko Actually A French Car-Sharing Service

Illustration for article titled Ikea Leko Actually A French Car-Sharing Service

Remember last week's Ikea Leko secret concept car? Had your hopes up for a super-cheap electric car? Maybe even one that you assemble yourself? Sadly, the reality is far from as entertaining as the rumors.

The Leko? Yeah, it's just a lame car sharing scheme for French enthusiasts of cheap Swedish furniture. We guess it's actually really hard to make a viable electric car after all. We're as disappointed as you are, but it could be kinda neat if Ikea brought something similar stateside, allowing us to take our flat pack furniture home in cheap rental vans instead of 2009 Honda Fit Sport loaners.

I like the idea of French car sharing. Anyone have an Alpine A310 they want to lend me?
