Students Design Electric “A0” Monocycle For Audi
Design

The vehicle, a cross between a unicycle and a Segway, is designed for urban mobility.

This electric unicycle was developed by engineering and design students from the Technical University of Munich and the National Autonomus University of Mexico, with sponsorship from Audi‘s Design Research Center. Described as a ‘monocycle for urban mobility,’ the A0 is intended to be used in combination with a car in a busy city. The user can drive from their home to a car park, take the Ao out of their trunk, unfold it, climb on and ride to their destination.

The light and compact design has an adjustable seat and handlebars, with folded footrests that can also be used as a kickstand. The A0’s maximum speed is 9mph (15kph) and the batteries last up to one hour before needing to be recharged.

Vehicles like these may change the way we traverse our urban spaces.
