The pace at which the number of vehicles is increasing on the city roads, causing pollution and massive traffic jams, the day isn’t far beyond when we will have to start walking down to the marketplace or workplace, like our ancestors used to do before the invention of autos. Addressing the issue, Romanian designer Vlad Icobet has come up with a futuristic vehicle that draws inspiration from the beautiful and organic shapes of nature and plants and blends it with advanced technology, making the cities a worthy living place. Intended for ultra-crowded cities of 2030 and beyond, the Bionic concept car runs on solar energy generated by the see-through polycarbonate roof with attached solar photovoltaic cells.
Featuring advanced and optimized materials (EAP-electro-active polymer layers) to change its shape in order to fit the varied needs of different users, the futuristic car also integrates advanced in-wheel motor technology, Nano PV cells and lithium ION battery for zero carbon emissions. Since the electric motor is placed within the wheels, the car can rotate on a sharp 360° angle with minimum fuss. The sustainable vehicle also includes an interactive display that allows the user to watch and control the vehicle’s reshaping options, GPS navigation and music player, while the modification zones are placed into the seat surfaces to control the expression of the seats for better comfort. In short, the Bionic concept car offers both new natural aesthetics and functional values through its radical design for future commutation.
