Environmental Smart Cars: The CityAnts Concept

Traffic coupled with sky-soaring noise levels had become an inevitable part of a commuter’s life. While some churn the technology refinery to bring out flying Cars, others test the potential of the tech-design frontiers. The CityAnts is one such Conceptual Car to do away with size issues and banks on an electric hub for the daily dose of power.

It compliments the idea of rental services as in the case of bicycles. The intended user will have to take it from a car station, drive it up to the required destination and then drop it at a station in the vicinity. I believe this concept is used to avoid lining up of vehicles and thereby save space with respect to parking lots.

This CityAnt has room for 2 passengers and moderate luggage. The stations will take upon themselves the work of juicing their batteries hub when not in use.  I think the design folks have had such a concept in their mills since long.  The Space Efficient Car and Folding Bicycles were similar prototypes churned by some of the budding designers.
