Default Another transportation-design project

and this time: electric vehicles in cooperation with Afikim - an israeli company that makes electric mobilty scooters - mainly for health reasons and for elder people..
we got a mission to find a new market, or another way to use the small electric engines..

i choose to take it to a more utility-vehicle, with a mechanism that will allow the chair to move forward so that you can have more storage space

pics are from old to new :)

Again, your very talented or2001 and I look forward to seeing where this work goes. I have a friend who requires the use of an electric wheelchair and of which something like this would interest him.

Very neat sketches, and an interesting concept too. One nit-picky thing though - I would be interested to see some different colors, lime green is nice but a variety of colors would really make the sketches stand out.

haha! we call this kind of green "designer\concept green", apparently it's very popular in conceptual designs.. i really like it too

we actually had this presentation in front of Afikim's CEO, heads local & inernational marketing, head of R&D and one of the design studios that works with Afikim :)
they really like that color too - most of their products are....bland...grey-ish and all...and they were really interested in giving some more color(s) to their scooters

one thing they weren't so sure about is my suggestion to use joysticks instead of regular steering wheel - they said the costumers are very conservative and that joysticks connect to people that have a greater disability then theirs...

anyway - for the moment we're only doing sketches, but they (and my teacher) said that this project can be a start of my final project for my last year! so i'm very pleased i guess :)

I like the idea, could you bring in aesthetics from ATVs or something either sporty or rugged
