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.
