In 2010, Romanian designer Vlad Icobet has come up with a futuristic vehicle concept that draws inspiration from the beautiful and organic shapes of nature and plants and blends it with advanced technology, making the cities a worthy living place. The Bionic concept car runs on solar energy generated by the see-through polycarbonate roof with attached solar photovoltaic cells.
Featuring advanced and optimized materials (EAP-electro-active polymer layers) to change its shape in order to fit the varied needs of different users, the futuristic car also integrates advanced in-wheel motor technology, Nano PV cells and lithium ION battery for zero carbon emissions.
The sustainable vehicle also includes an interactive display that allows the user to watch and control the vehicle’s reshaping options, GPS navigation and music player, while the modification zones are placed into the seat surfaces to control the expression of the seats for better comfort. The Bionic concept car offers both new natural aesthetics and functional values through its radical design for future commutation.
