I've said this before... I'm not sure if a "one size fits all chassis" is going to produce a good ICE powered car, hybrid car, or EV car. It might be more convenient to build though...

Seems BMW once claimed to design cars to be the "ultimate driving machine". I would be surprised if you could do this with a universal chassis. For example, What are they going to do, put weights in the car to help get that 50/50 weight distribution in various configurations?

"Design with purpose". This design might be good for the production line, but I doubt very seriously if something like this will produce anything close to the "ultimate driving machine".

Might be pretty cool for an economy car company but not for the likes of BMW I think.

A flying car isn't a particularly good car or a good airplane.
