At first glance, the Gruccione looks to be what we would like from a Tristella SUV: Its bold, aggressive and hits all the right design elements. The light designs that are especially well done on this, with the inner headlight bits just add a nice touch overall and the taillights is a nice approach of fitting the Tristella design to a taller body. The downsides to this design however, is with just a few odd choices both done and not done. First one is the side front fender vent that goes nowhere. Yes it fits as a shape, but it just looks silly once you realize doors don’t need cooling. Second is the lack of B or C pillars after the clear glass treatment, it just looks incomplete. (Honestly I think this would have been stronger without the interior treatment personally, but I’m very particular about how interiors are done.)

This is one of those designs that took a bit of time to settle in. It both hits the right spots as a Tristella electric SUV, but also makes you think “wow that is a big Tristella”. It does a good job of combining the aggressive design cues with the clean look electric cars have, with it being easily identifiable on it being both a Tristella and it being electric.The interior, with that color scheme, is nicely done and fits well with the electric theme. However, the rear end really looks bare, with the license plate being just… there. Also the front badge is massive.

This is definitely an interesting body shape to use but it actually works quite well. However, as per the brief, this is definitely not a SUV and doesn’t particularly look to be an electric design, aside from the lack of exhausts as the identifying feature. Another issue is that while the lights are very much a good Tristella style design, the front fascia and rear bumper are too much of a departure, with the holes in the rear bumper being a rather questionable design choice. The grille in particular, while working for the design overall, simply lacks a connection to other Tristella designs.

Now this definitely hits the mark for what a Tristella SUV would be like. While big, it keeps a rather sporty, sleek profile. The front fascia with its admittedly huge grille has an aggressive design that fits well with the rest of the lineup, with the lights flowing back nicely. The way the windows are raked forward as well makes the SUV look much lower than it actually is. The rear end is also nicely filled without being too busy, even with the taillights being so thin on such a thick rear end. Overall a very nice design.

I won’t lie, this looks too low end for the markets that Tristella targets. Also electric or not, even with the required design cues, the car does not look like it fits with the brand, looking more like a SUV from another mid-end luxury brand rather than one from a sports-luxury marque. More aggression in the design is definitely needed.
Its a good looking car, but here’s the problem I have with it: Take away the badges, and nothing on it even hints at you that you’re looking at a Tristella. There’s not much more I can go into for this since its undeniably a solid design, just not the design I’m looking for.
Tristella Nightjar by Propeller
Initial look around for the Nightjar is a good impression. It certainly hits the mark for the brief, with a distinctive electric look and undeniably Tristella design. The details are also all there, with a clean take on the Tristella light design. There is also good flow from front to back with how the vents are placed, though one complaint I would have is how blocky a few of the elements are, particularly with the hood and rear bumper. Curvier or sharper elements would definitely be preferred.

I’ll start with the good, the taillights are pretty nice, and definitely work well. However the rest of the car looks way too cheap for a Tristella and lacks the sharpness or feel of prestige that the brand has. That and the huge badges.
