Cargo Scooter Concept by Elliot Ortiz

Although initially designed as more of a blue sky concept, cargo still embodies many practical resolutions. The styling is meant to appear traditional from the front, while the profile reveals something entirely new. A square shaped hole was chosen to suggest objects should fill it.

The roof of the cargo compartment seems to not to have any purpose other than to limit the size of the cargo you can carry. I would be so pissed if a potential client called and I had to say "Oh it is 33" tall? Sorry I can only carry stuff that is 32" tall." I think this is a great idea that got hijacked by the "this would look cool" syndrome.

I would suggest the designer look at actual working cargo bikes more to understand the usage of these vehicles.

As a scooter rider I can see a the benefit of a more substantial cargo capacity, however this is not the way to do it.

Unladen this scoot would have terrible steering dynamics with practically no weight over the front wheel. If it had any sort of power (which is unlikely because it looks electric) the front would also lift and skip, and as soon as you try to lean into a corner you're going to get a closeup of ashphalt.

And how does it steer? There's clearly no mechanical linkage that works between those 'handlebars' and the front end, which means its fly-by-wire, not only a first for a 2 wheel vehicle, but rare in cars and usually the domain of high tech racers.

Tell him his dreamin'!

I take it that the wheels each has an electric motor and the "Ring" of the body contains the battery.

The sterring is faniful, a simple offset linkage would work fine.

I also think it needs side panels to stop stuff falling out.

Other than that it looks like it could actually work.

My considerations are to the costs. as has been stated up thread, fly by wire is the very expensive domain of planes and racing cars.

This is a low speed low performance delivery tool, it doesn't need fly by wire etc.

Looks cool though
