Swiss students have developed a unique mini-car that has absorbed all the best features of the most popular vehicles – from bicycles to electric vehicles. Unusual transport received only three wheels and a single salon.

Students at the University of Zurich in Switzerland came up with an unusual transport, to identify a variety of which is very problematic. Bicar (this is how the talented developers called their offspring) is a kind of hybrid of a scooter, a bicycle and an electric car. About the creation of a miniature electric car with three wheels instead of the standard four, the authors of the project thought about three years ago, but the development of the prototype began relatively recently.

The plans for the next few years – to get EU approval, and enlist the support of sponsors. Some Swiss companies have already become interested in the mini-car.

According to local media, the futurist model of Bicar is predicted the future of one of the most sought-after cars for carsharing. Miniature “gibirid” can ride on urban roads all year round at a speed of 45 km/h. The cabin of the car, although it resembles a “doll”, but for one person is very convenient.

Recall, previously the Austrians introduced a robot-“parking”, which can charge electric vehicles. To find the right cable, the robot takes only about 30 seconds, and then it’s a matter of technology.
