(Newser) – Ikea says it’s unveiling a car March 31, but the day after that is—you got it—April 1, Jalopnik reports. The Leko, which is touted by its “designer” on a French website set up by the Swedish home-furnishing giant, will be modular, able to operate as a coupe or a convertible, and has the support of World Wildlife Fund France. Apparently, it’s very environmentally friendly, but no word yet on whether you assemble it at home.
