According to the Tech.blorge blog Daniel Bailey has designed an electric car that not only doesn’t emit CO2* it also shrinks to allow for easier parking – reducing congestion and therefore more pollution.
It has been created for a Peugeot competition. Admittedly the folding car, anticipated to be powered by a hydrogen fuel cell, is not yet at prototype stage. Initial pictures on Bailey’s website suggest it will be stunning and sporty if a little odd when parked.
Its working name is the BRB Evolution – lets hope that improves a little.
