nThree Electric Vehicle Offers The Comfort of A Car with The Cost of An E-Bike

nThree electric vehicle aims to provide you with affordable, personal vehicle that features the comfort of a car yet with the cost of an e-bike. It sounds pretty ambitious and interesting, doesn’t it? Let’s read what these designers have to say about the project.

Following the recent electric revolution of lightweight vehicles around the world, the nThree is a new design, following the very successful nCycle e-bike concept. With the irreversible process of global economies turning towards renewable energy, the way we see and use the city has already changed and is set to do so dramatically in the next few years.

With our increased awareness and sensitivity towards energy consumption, courtesy among others of the most recent economic crisis, in the last 4-5 years, personal transportation has begun a slow but steady drift away from the model we have come to know in the past century. The 10s and hundreds of new e-bikes and electric cars like the Renault Twizy or Toyota i-Road have shown the way to a more personal and conscious approach. Our new concept builds on the characteristics and refines the strengths of these vehicles to bring electric power even closer to the mass market.

Small electric cars, tricycles and quadricycles all suffer from the same inherent drawback; they are meant to be cheap and affordable but they end up being expensive like real cars because they are BUILT like real cars. The mission on the nThree was to address these conceptual and design shortcomings and design an affordable, single-seat electric vehicle that would offer all (or most) of the comforts of an electric car at the cost of an e-bike.

To achieve the objectives, the nThree electric vehicle was built with a simplistic approach reminiscent on the nCycle. In first place, the vehicle was reduced to the most essential stable geometry of three wheels to reduce cost. Even though the latest small electrics are a great way to move around the urban areas, there is something about these offerings that does not look great at all: Price. Starting from about 7000 Euros and above these 1-2 seaters cost almost as much as a cheap standard car and more than many used ones in good condition.

Phase 2.0 Futuristic Vehicle Can Handle Wider Variety of Terrain

Well it is difficult to imagine what transportation in future would like with the way designers are coming up with innovative vehicle designs. That being said, if you had to ride to your organization in the new concept Phase 2.0, you certainly wouldn’t have much to criticize about, specially because it features TRON-like lighting over the wheels. This spectacular all-terrain three-wheeler has an auto-pressurized tire for adjusting to several environments like desert dune or swamps and boasts 2 smaller tires to support it. While going over irregular terrain like rocky regions, the pressure on the tire can be reduced, nevertheless, tire pressure can simply be increased while speeding down the Autobahn.

Well, about the engine, the designer wanted it to work with used water with an exceptional Laser that makes a strange combustion, which can make this titanic engine work. This machine would be driven digitally and the driver needn’t have an eye on the big tire. The designer intends this extraordinary vehicle to be far off into the future for real-time applications.

Silhouette Is An Ingenious Transportation Vehicle Designed For An Exquisite Trip To The Office

Silhouette is the gentleman’s pedal to work. It has been designed to offer an elegant, light, user and environmentally friendly transport. The three-wheeler is made from lightweight materials, thus the engine is very small. Being a vehicle that has to carry you all the way to work, in one of the most impressive ways possible, you don’t need a drivers license for it. According to Jake Loniak, the man behind the Silhouette, in California this would be a moped. A moped has a speed limit to thirty five miles per hour, it may not be fast so you need to wake up a half our early, but it offers a cheap maintenance. This means a one-time registration fee of five dollars, no special licensing and low insurance rates. The name of this lightweight one-seater comes from the shape of the chassis, which is shaped to fit and support in a relaxed way the body that you own, bringing man and machine into one.
