The transportation industry plays a crucial role in modernization. As city residents and planners look to new forms of transportation, the private automobile is losing popularity. Mobilize is ahead of the curve compared to the competition and provides two solutions to the emerging issues of urban and electric mobility.
Mobilize's goal is to improve all kinds of transportation, and their Solo Concept is a forward-thinking example of that. It's a lightweight electric car made for one person that can go almost anywhere.
More generally, the Mobilize Solo Concept represents how Mobilize is breaking away from traditional car design by exemplifying mobility that is at once ultra-light, fluid, and nimble. Renault's Indian design studio is famous for its innovative projects, and its designers' first concept was a skateboard equipped with an umbrella.
By fusing the body with the object, Mobilize Solo Concept creates an experience not unlike putting on an article of clothing. Here, the driver maintains a relaxed, semi-seated stance while doing their thing.
Mobilize also views this idea as a way to collaborate with the fashion industry to make unique, on-the-go accessories (clothes, bags, and luggage).
Mobilize Solo Concept can reach speeds of up to 25 kilometers per hour. The joystick in place of a conventional steering wheel and the lack of legal restraints make driving with this system appealing (a nod to the videogaming world). Its protective shell, airbag, and emergency stop button triggered with the driver's foot all contribute to a high level of safety. Thus, compared to scooters, one-wheelers, and other forms of personal transportation, the Mobilize Solo Concept offers special safety measures.
The Mobilize Solo Concept has three wheels: two larger ones up front for traction and one smaller in the back for maneuverability. Due to its asymmetrical shape, it can only be opened on the left side of its body. The swiveling of the reclining seat within the cabin reveals a deep, bag-friendly storage area. You may hose down the cockpit and the rest of the body. Half of the Mobilize Solo Concept's frame and 95% of the entire vehicle can be recycled.
To save space in parking garages, multiple Mobilize Solo Concept vehicles can park side by side; six Solo electric cars can be parked neatly in a conventional parking place.
Plug-in, inductive (wireless), and switching batteries are the three types of chargers available. Many Mobilize Solo Concept electric cars can be charged at once from a single inductive charging slot using this technology (the one at the front is plugged into the terminal and uses induction to transfer electricity to the others behind it). The battery of the Solo Concept can be removed and recharged at home (like an e-bike battery).
"Solo concept embodies the spirit of the Mobilize brand in every way: it's entertaining, useful, and built to last. The Mobilize Solo Concept has taken up as little room as possible in urban areas while providing maximum protection from the elements and a full suite of safety measures inside. Patrick Lecharpy, VP of Design at Mobilize, says, "We also worked on coming up with a posture that the user finds comfortable and relaxed, testifying to the vehicle's ultra-mobility." @via autonews.
