Paraton-e Futuristic Vehicle Blurs The Line Between a Car and a Motorcycle

Paraton-e futuristic concept vehicle aims to amalgamate sustainable thinking with new material technologies to produce a vehicle that effectively fills the gap between car and motorcycle. Issues surrounding the sustainability of recurring urban commutes and increasing traffic congestion have been addressed. As such, this vehicle was conceived to be an ecologically sensitive solution that simultaneously responds to the high comfort demands of a downsizing car owner demographic. Reinforced shape memory polymers enable a flexible footprint and cabin space to actively transform the vehicle whilst in motion.

The user can choose between a configuration that leans and negotiates traffic like a motorcycle, or features a reclined seating position and broad footprint to deliver a stable and assisted driving experience suitable for higher speeds. The variable width of the vehicle also allows for parking in public spaces including footpaths

Suspect it would combine the worst of both transport modes – lacks bike manoeuvrability, lacks car transportability.

I tried a Renault Twizy recently, which is of similar size and shape, hence my comment above.

Looks pretty though, so points for style!
