Future of Vehicles on City Roads

What we are looking at ?

A city is anytime almost crowded with vehicles on road. The density of the traffic is worse when we people commute to our work places. So Monday to Friday two times it is seen as hell of the traffic. In Delhi, the capital of India, sees this in extreme mode and so Mumbai and Bangalore feel the same. In Delhi alone 56000 fresh new vehicles are added each month. Almost 30-40% of that portion is new cars.

The need

Almost 90% of the cars that are on road occupy only the driver. Forget about the car pool which is practically most of the times not possible.  All those empty seats are just occupying more road space and thus creating more congestion on the road. If we dig further in the thought we can suggest to use bikes as they use less space, but they are inconvenient to drive, are not safe and yeah weather. But there is a solution (may be more), some companies are making small cars for single or double occupant and are safe too.

The Solution

These cars seems to be a childish toy at first glance, but they are products of careful engineering.

Technically they are tricycles but with the added advantages with what they come they are more relatable to car. The idea for 3 wheeled design is to add more mobility and reduce the space. Two person can easily occupy these and these are electric models proposed by companies.

Any product is worth producing if the consumer demands it, so it is up to us whether we like this solution or not.  Some of the advantages that comes with this are:

  1. High Mobility in city
  2. Electric Vehicle = No direct pollution
  3. Great mileage (aprox. 50 km per charge which will be increased in production models)
  4. Safe
