Eco Factor: Zero-emission concept car powered by electric motors.
After creating some of the best computers, phones, tablets and music players, designers are now thinking the about the future of Apple. While some come up with concept gadgets the company can produce in the future, auto designer Liviu Tudoran has come up with a concept car for Apple. Christened the iMove, the zero-emission vehicle will be propelled by electric motors and as expected, it will feature some of the best gadgetry that we’ve ever seen in a car.
The main idea is to create an Apple branded car that will break the general idea of conventional vehicle by the year 2020. Keeping in mind the main characteristics and design language of the brand, the vehicle is inspired from Apple products and the lifestyle of those who use them. The small city car is powered by electricity and will be able to seat three passengers in a variety of configurations.
The interior space shines with a full touchscreen display that covers the entire dashboard and includes a variety of gadgets to play with. The top of the iMove is inspired by Apple’s Macintosh mouse shape and can also open while on the move to give a cabriolet feeling. The exterior surface is covered with a photochromic material that allows the user to change the vehicle’s appearance using available presets.
Luggage is stored under an elastic textile material placed in the rear of the vehicle. The material can hold any type of object under its pressure. The roof of the vehicle is covered with pyramidal glass receptors that use sunlight to generate electricity to charge the vehicle’s electronic dashboard.
