Futuristic urban concept vehicle for the youth of 2020
The futuristic urban concept vehicle is the work of designer Nanish K R, and is intended for the urban youth of the year 2020. The styling is simple, and employs curves for the exterior, giving the concept a different yet simple look. It is a zero emission environment friendly vehicle getting juice from lithium ion batteries mounted to the chassis.
The concept moves on four independent electromagnetic wheels, thus doing away with conventional powertrain design. These wheels are made of two sliding rings, one of which is an electromagnet, while the other is a permanent magnet. As the electromagnet is activated by power from the battery, the formation of the same polarity between the electromagnet and the permanent magnet create a repulsive force, thus moving the wheels. To brake, the opposite poles of the magnets are made to face each other, and the attraction is used to halt motion.
Body panels of the concept are made of polycarbonate to keep it lightweight. The inherent transparency of polycarbonates, and the panoramic roof of the concept reduce blindspots to a minimum. The car has rear view cameras, LED lamps, all controls integrated into a single touch-screen controller on the dashboard, and a rotatable co-passenger seat for better communication between passengers.
