I'm surprised about the folding car. Not the fact that it's been developed, or the fact that it was developed by Israelis, but the notion that it was developed FOR Israelis:

Israelis have an abnormally high TFR for a developed country. That means lots of kids to cart around. If there's one place where a non-luxury, non-sporty 2-seater isn't going to sell well, I'd think it'd be Israel.

OTOH maybe riding the bus in Jerusalem or Tel Aviv isn't as nice an experience as it used to be.
