We’re pretty sure that you are doing everything you can to save money, why not save space at the same time? Do you know that 90-95% of all cars normally just carry one person? It would be great if we can slim down our mode of transportation that is showing signs of becoming seriously obese. A sleek and light-weight vehicles have many advantages, such as better maneuverability, lower emissions, leaner production, and higher fuel economy. The suggested Space Efficient Vehicle (SEV) will do fine as sole vehicle for singles, couples and one-child families and of course during rush hour when traffic is at its worst.
The Space Efficient Vehicle (SEV) was a finalist in the 2008 Michelin Challenge Design, and was put on display at the Detroit Motor Show.
The design of SEV is based around 3 wheel platform vehicle, if you can look the picture of this car concept, there are two passengers at the front and one at the rear, this will offer more stable platform than the alternate configuration and at the same time gives the driver a more car-like driving experience.
