Hey folks!
long time since I've submitted my last piece here.
The 2nd semster of my transportation design study was more stressful than i thought, but it also was a lot of fun.
I'll be submitting some of the results of the small projects we had.
And I'm gonna start with the latest project we had, which was also the largest so far, for it went -unlike the other projects- for more than a week.
we were given the task of changing the (lame) image of environmentally friendly cars with design, under the aspects that we see suitable.
The project was partially sponsered by Mercedes, that's why it's a mercedes that I've designed. I hope you like it:)

Who said that environmentally concious drivig should be boring?
Forget everything you know about conventional eco-cars.

The E.matic was conceptualized for young, dynamic drivers, who attach importance to a notacable, yet not provoking appearance.
The design of the vehicle signalizes a light character, which can be experienced in daily driving. Only highly stiff plastics and lightest metals were used for manufacturing the car.
The car is powered by 4 elctric in-wheel engines (e.matic) placed in the wheels. This guarantees not only a clean environment, but also an optimal weight distribution.
solar energy collecting surfaces cover the fornt part of the car and provide the interior with energy, while the four electric engines are energized by a high-performance
Nanosafe™ battery, which allows recharging in about 10 minutes.
The battery packs are placed into the floor of the car, between the front and the rear wheels. This also guarantees an efficient weight distribution.

That's amazing! If Mercedes sponsored it, does that mean this has a chance of getting design elements or features put into production? Because that would be amazing!

Very Nice. I am a fan of your designs, I think a couple of your designs resemble to the Smart Roadster so much.

I was wondering if you could make some mods/props to a Smart Roadster Coupe, a do-able mod, I am thinking of making some external changes to my car in fiber glass and red, orange or maybe other leather color to seats and door panels, also candy colours in the interiors panels, I don´t know, I want a nice and elegant design, how much $ would you charge me to do some props? My Roadster is copue, blue with silver tridion.

My proposal is serious, could you please private message me or send me an email please? brolyss4@hotmail.com

Thank you

i was about to ask if you were working for a automobile company but from what it looks like you're on the road to doing that. i hope your design makes it to the blueprint stage, you wouldn't believe how many celebs are crazy over these environmetally-safe cars over here in cali. hell everybody is!

Wow!I aspire to become a car designer and am trying my best to get there since I realised that goal.However,it would be a great help if you could give me some pointers-
how did you get into car designing?
I'm Australian and in high school so it's very hard for me to be "led by example" when the only major car manufacturers are Ford and Holden (our Ford is different to the American one) and there's not exactly a lot of information on this sort of topic anywhere...
I can draw OK. But I have never really taken off in anything because I have a bad procrastination habit and I'm scared shitless of what the product could be like if I end up realising I don't have the talent for this sort of thing...
If you could help me out in any way it'd be much appreciated.
