We’ve heard it all from the CUVs to the SUVs and the MUVs but something which was unheard off was the SEV which unwinds as Space Efficient Vehicle. Enter the Aliens isn’t the case with this one people for this Space is used in terms of the Space a car occupies whilst commuting. We have no hard feelings here for it’s all about design thoughts which make this SEV design extra special, special enough to get materialized in say the next decade with fuel economy as a major priority with car makers.
A finalist at the Michelin Design Challenge, the SEV uses space to increase the commuting as well as consumption efficiency of a vehicle. Designing cues were taken after considering that most vehicles just carry a single person on a regular basis which calls for a lot of space saving. It sports three people inside and is based on a three-wheeled platform but still manages to give a car like feel. Safety is ensured by maintaining a low center of gravity and a lane detection system that keeps the drivers in his lane. Even problems like over-steering and rolling over are taken care off. All these cues easily put it as the design of the day with us.
