There's a New Car Designed Just for Women and Ellen DeGeneres Is Not a Fan

The car is equipped with, “jewel-effect rims, a handbag hook, and eyeliner headlights that are emphasized in the same way makeup emphasizes the eye," and Ellen has something to say about it!

If you recall Ellen DeGeneres’s epic takedown of the Bic Pen for Her back in 2012, you know that Ellen is not a fan of gendered stuff. Now, four years after she skewered the smaller-barreled pen that came in only pink and purple for the ladies, Ellen just lambasted the new car for women, which is, of course, purple.

“There’s a woman running for president. I mean, women really have come a long way,” Ellen begins on the monologue for her talk show. “Just when you think we’ve come so far, something like this happens,” Ellen says, referring to the car designed just for women.

“Finally we can stop driving those nasty man cars,” Ellen says.

The car, called Seat Mii, comes equipped with “jewel-effect rims, a handbag hook, and eyeliner headlights that are emphasized in the same way makeup emphasizes the eye,” Ellen tells her audience while giggling at the silliness of it all.

“They say it’s comfortable. The seats recline all the way back to the 1950s,” Ellen says, drawing raucous laughter from the audience.

The car company teamed up with Cosmopolitan magazine to design the car, according to Ellen.

The purple lady car will be available in 2017 for $11,000, and you can bet Ellen has something to say about that.

“It’s a good price point because women make a fraction of what men make, so that’s actually really good,” she says.

Here’s Ellen’s full takedown of the Seat Mii!
