One Swedish company is redesigning electric automobiles distinctly for short distance driving with a unique flair for design.
Swedish startup, Uniti, has decided to release a prototype of its namesake Uniti EV by 2017, after reaching crowdfunding goals just two days after it revealed its campaign.
One way it has “reinvented” automobiles is doing away with the bulkier designs of its predecessors. It wants to remove all the “unnecessary features and attributes” of traditional cars and current EVs, and create a small, lightweight EV perfect for the requirements of city driving.
Its interior has also been redesigned, with its steering system resembling a Wii controller more than a traditional steering wheel.
The goal is to eventually mix the controls altogether and aim for autonomy. The windshield also functions as a futuristic heads-up display featuring “ crazy gaming and entertainment options,” according to the company’s own tech specs.
