Eco Cars: Shape-shifting electric vehicle is controlled by a wireless controller
Eco Factor: Zero-emission vehicle powered by electricity.
The megalopolis of the future demands vehicles that can change their shape and size according to the need without polluting the atmosphere. Industrial designer David Vega thinks that vehicles powered by electricity, which can increase or decrease in size according to the number of occupants in the vehicle or the traffic on the road, can answer the problems quite easily.
David has designed a concept vehicle, known as Plus, with size changing capabilities. The car’s base is a rolled surface that gives the possibility of expansion. The structure also allows the owner to remove or add more seats according to the number of occupants.
The open structure also enables the owner to add systems that are missing in the car. The vehicle is designed to be powered by four electric motors, one in each wheel, which have their own electric batteries. Unlike a conventional car, this car is controlled by a wireless controller which mimics the Nintendo Wii.
