okay but how do the people in the back get out when the front doors are blocking their exit?

well could be one door for the entire side maybe.
or like i said a design that would have two tracks for each door parallel to each other. Like half a door for the driver side on one track that locks in place then the back passenger door track.

Maybe you could design it so that the front door slides back first, then when it aligns with the rear door then both slide back. But that means when you open the front door the back door opens too even if there are no rear seat passengers.

But you'd want it all to be mechanical, no electrical parts so that passengers could get out if there was electrical malfunction.

When you stare into a mirror and nobody is there, you will know the reflection has become self aware.

The front door track would have to go to the rear, covering up the rear passenger exit/entrance. No way could the rear seat passengers exit/enter at the same time as the driver and front seat passenger. There's a good reason 3rd seat minivans don't have a slider door for the 3rd row of seats and the passengers must exit through the same doors as the 2nd row passengers.

I am sure someone could come up with a good design.

This is what we need with the spaces getting so tight

I own a minivan and no way in hell would I want a slider door for the driver's door. Slider doors are slower (you have no control over the opening and closing speed) than I can get in and out of a traditional hinged car door and the mechanisms in electrical sliding doors are prone to malfunctioning and needing repairs.

How much room do you need to get in and out of a vehicle? Even when I had my huge Suburban, getting in and out of the large doors wasn't that much of an issue.

Well like i said , in a tight parking space situation it's different. Also what pisses me off is when someone parks so close you can't even open your door.
at least with the sliding door. You could get in if you had to squeeze lol.

Soon you won't be able to drive your own car, it will all be done by AI and automated vehicle systems. So, if the robot parks your car into a slot you can't get out of you have to sit there until the other robots move their cars.

In a large parking lot I like to park next to a concrete island (not sure what they're called, some islands are landscaped with trees or flowers) so there's one less side someone could hit me with with their vehicle. It's also easier to enter the driver's door when there's no car parked on that side. If that's not possible and a car is parked tightly on the driver's side, why couldn't you enter through the front passenger door and slide over to the driver's side?

If the vehicle owner of a vehicle with a front slider was being chased down by a criminal looking to steal the vehicle or rape the owner, the car owner would have to wait for the electric mechanism to close the slider - much slower process than being able to quickly close a traditional hinged door by yourself. A scenario women would probably consider fairly important when considering purchasing a vehicle with an electric front slider.

One thing I hate is tight parking spaces with no room to open your door. Also having to squeeze out and others hitting your car.

Why are they not more cars with sliding driver and passenger doors ?


Like in a van with the passenger sliding doors but have them for the front also.

Could be one door for each side,
or two doors with different parallel tracks ?
Why they don't?

With self-driving cars, everyone is a passenger. Maybe cars will have only a single sliding door.

OT- Once upon a time, there was a car that the whole front opened up for passengers to enter and exit, the Isetta.
I've actually ridden in one of these, c. 1960. My mom, her friend from high school, the friend's 2 boys, and I went to the circus in it. I'm still trying to figure out how we fit. I don't remember it being uncomfortable or cramped.
The oldest boy and I were about 5.
