Customizable Electric Pods Could Replace Cars & Buses [Pics]
Futuristic concept car designed to better coexist with bicycles.
- 7 march 2012
Designer Vincet Montreuli has put together a thorough proposal to introduce compact pod-like vehicles that can better integrate with Amsterdam’s current transportation means. In partnership with Shell, the GameChanger DRIVEN competition aims to invite designers to submit vehicle solutions that are environmentally sustainable.
Montreuli’s entry is this eco-friendly pod vehicle that can be easily customized and can better coexist with bicycles in replacement of cars, motorbikes and buses. These electric cars can accommodate one to four passengers and the outer ‘shell’ panels can be changed to showcase different ads and designs. The vehicle runs on a lithium phosphate battery and can reach 100 kilometers in a single charge.
