GM EN-V CONCEPT
In order to enhance quality and meet future needs, GM and its strategic partner, Shanghai Automotive Industry Corp. Group (SAIC), share a common vision for addressing the need for personal mobility through a radical change in personal urban transportation. They are exploring several solutions for tomorrow’s drivers. Among the most promising is a new vehicle form called EN-V.
GM EN-V Concept is giving it the unique ability to carry two passengers and light cargo. It’s propelled by electric motors in each of its two driving-mode wheels. In addition, everything in EN-V is drive-by-wire, supporting its ability to operate autonomously or under manual control by combining the Global Positioning System (GPS) with vehicle-to-vehicle communications.
The design gives each EN-V its own personality, with a unique opening, elegant interior and innovative color, lighting and seat technology. Xiao offers a more lighthearted appeal, with its “gumball blue” paint and nautical-inspired design. Miao takes most of its design cues from the consumer electronics industry, as evidenced by its sleek, masculine looks. Designers also used Miao to display innovative lighting solutions, including extensive use of LED accent lighting. With its clean lines and bright paintwork, Jiao takes its design influence from bullet trains and Chinese opera masks. The body and canopy of GM EN-V Concept are constructed from carbon fiber, custom-tinted Lexan and acrylic, materials that are more commonly used in race cars, military airplanes and spacecraft.
From the name of EN-V, which is short for Electric Networked-Vehicle, maintains the core principle of personal mobility, freedom and environmentally friendly. Not only to be free from petroleum and emissions, this car also to be free from congestion and accidents. Three EN-V models were unveiled in Shanghai. They represent three different characteristics that emphasize the enjoyable nature of future transportation: Jiao (Pride), Miao (Magic) and Xiao (Laugh).
It weighs less than 500 kilograms and is about 1.5 meters in length. By comparison, today’s typical automobile weighs more than 1,500 kilograms and is three times as long. In addition, today’s automobiles require more than 10 square meters of parking space and are parked more than 90 percent of the time.
THE MAGNET CAR
This car overcomes the force of gravity through the strategic use of an electric engine and magnets. Fuel source is one the worldwide problem make the price increase nowadays.To finds an unusual solution to the problem of, expending fuel to get somewhere. Rather than finding a different fuel source, or building a smaller car, the company ingeniously reduces the weight of the car by using an electric engine with magnets the same polarity as the roads. The resulting upward force lightens the vehicle’s weight by 50%.
Another innovative touch is the design of the seats: two outer layers, pile yarn, and a soft construction foam make it possible to adjust the final hardness and spring characteristics of the seat. This lightweight, adaptable seating not only cuts down on waste during construction and the overall weight of the vehicle while being driven, it also sounds pretty light.
In order for the magnetic engine to properly polarize, the roads on which it’s driven also have to be magnetized. Magnetic roads not being yet readily available, the design for right now remains purely theoretical. But the day they are, so there will be a magnet car in this world.
