1 Peugeot Facile A versatile green vehicle for future roads on Tue Sep 14, 2010 2:44 am
EcoFactor: An electric concept car that can assume the shape of an electric trike or even an electric monocycle when needed.
The Peugeot Facile is one electric vehicle that sure knows how to adapt with changing conditions and needs. Designed by Thierry Dumaine, the concept car can shift from being a complete car to a tricycle or even a monocycle so that it fits the needs of the driver. The car is powered by an electric engine and that engine can be used to power both the trike and even the monocycle version of the Facile. Apart from being a zero-emission vehicle, it also reduces energy consumption by assuming the minimal required shape that suits the needs of the consumer. It also makes sure that you do not get stuck in the traffic anymore as you can just pull out the monocycle and ride away (After safely securing the remainder of the Facile).
The Dark Side:
The concept of Facile sounds both overdone and pretty common. The look of the car and the features seem like a mundane repetition of the old concept car designs. Hopefully the creators of these green future vehicles will come up with designs that are a lot more realistic and surely more original.
