The Snail Ride That Is Fast!

The Snail Ride That Is Fast!

Call it a contradiction, but the ‘Snail Motorcycle’ promises to be a fast bike to ride. Designed as a foldable electric motorcycle, once it folds up, the bike is as small as a snail! Easy to carry and speedy to use, the concept looks very outlandish, which is why it interests us. You can open the bike by rotating and scaling the body. The rear wheels serve as the charging box and the powerhouse for functioning.

I’m Home Now

I’m Home Now

Love this nHome caravan dedicated to young active people who epitomize modern lifestyle. Sized to be perfectly small yet spacious, the interiors are surprisingly roomy. I suppose the fact that it is lit by a large window placed on the roof and three windows on each side of the dining room, helps the cause. The caravan features a dining room, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom. It is also equipped with a voluminous boot.

Cycle + Air Pump

Cycle + Air Pump

Inflator Bicycle is a cycle design where the frame of the bike acts as an inflator for cycle tire. This “always with you” bicycle pump is designed by putting inside the frame a connecting bar and a piston. You can pump in air to the tire by simply moving the bicycle seat up and down. The pipe and the gas nozzle hooks onto the cycle frame and it inflates both, the back wheel and the front wheel.

What a Crossover Should Be

What a Crossover Should Be

The Komodo channels the same fierce power and tough aesthetic of the Mahindra brand’s famous trucks and tractors. The concept is in like with crossovers like the BMW X6 or Infiniti FX, but purposely lacks the delicacy and refinement that makes the other’s owners cringe at the though of driving through a puddle. Instead, its rough-and-tumble character begs for the off-road and is happier towing toys and getting dirty than cruising down the boulevard!

Putting the Auto in Automobile

Putting the Auto in Automobile

DOMI is a compact concept that provides a solution for both driven and undriven modes. The interior cabin can be laid out like an office or living room so the user can catch up on work  or simply relax while the vehicle self-guides to the destination using a combination of GPS and smart road sign technology. The “driver” can even fall asleep on the move, or, when they’re ready, take the wheel to zip around the city they’re own way!

Paean is far-out concept takes aim at today’s workaholics, offering a break from the day-to-day grind! The vehicle changes shape to work in three modes- the first is an aerodynamic “speed mode” so the driver can get out of the city quickly, the second is an open air “healing mode” that lets the driver enjoy the fresh air and exposure to nature, and the third is a “rest mode” where the user can park, kick back and relax.

When Efficient is an Understatement

The NTNU student team’s entry for the Shell Eco Marathon can travel nearly 1000 miles on the equivalent energy of just one liter of gas! How is that even possible?! The answer is with a calculated blend of electric battery tech and ultra-lightweight materials. Its monocoque shell is constructed around a carbon fiber frame, helping the vehicle to weigh in at an unbelievable 154 pounds! The final design is an ideal fusion between aerodynamics, lightness and contemporary car design. Watch it come to life —>

Phantom of the marina – Rolls-Royce inspired yacht

Rolls-Royce and Yachts. That is how high rollers roll on both Terra firma and Aqua fluida. So why not blend em both into a single entity to make a splash (quite literally) in the luxury scene? That is what Stefan Munro has attempted with his Rolls Royce 450EX yacht concept. With a 14.5m length, the 450EX is intended as a daytime luxury cruiser with the prestige of the luxury marque.

The Ultimate Off-Road Racer

The Ultimate Off-Road Racer

The Duality concept vehicle ambitiously attempts to blur the lines between off-road SUV and race car. But how does it harmonize these extremes? The answer lies in its four dual purpose tires and articulated suspension, both of which transition between 2 modes in the flick of a switch. See how it works —>

Awesomely Autonomous Auto

Awesomely Autonomous Auto

The Uniblock automated vehicle is actually a modular 3-cars-in-1! The clever design splits up to tackle different scenarios. In single car mode, it’s beneficial for short distances or using narrow roads. Expanded to two or three, Uniblock becomes the perfect caravan for making long journeys on the wider open road. Best of all, it will drive itself so you can sit back and relax inside the comfy reconfigurable cabin!
