Meek: A concept of low emission taxi with a sustainable approach collectively

The once-thriving industry of automobile and again has teamed up with the wonderful sentence of sustainability. Do but wants the expansive scope of sustainability really say? Simply put, involves the meeting of our present needs without compromising the ability of future generations (needs).

In this connection, there has been some innovative yet credible automotive conceptions that defend the pronouncement and the field of sustainability. Such a design concept is the Meek: a car from the direction, electric powered taxi which could serve customers in the future year of 2022.

Manso by Jacob Haim a car TAXI concept of direction
Developed by a design team of Jacob Haim, Nils Kramer and Matthews Wagner, Meek conception has referred to as a friendly echoed that would be conducive to the urban traffic system. According to the designers, most technologies of management vehicles auto current trafficking the essence intrinsic mechanism of the car instead of using the most important component of the passengers. But their conceptualization will come as a just solution to the passenger related predicaments (along with its environmental effects comprehensive). The fight against the problems will be done through various factors such as minimize congestion of traffic, accident prevention and maintaining the level of passenger comfort. But most importantly, the system will thrive to provide efficient and cost-effective transport with a fervent echo vibrates aware.

Overcrowding conditions encountered in areas densely populated mega cities and clusters around Asia, Europe and North America, designers have based characteristics of emission, the ergonomics and the fuel economy of Meek. In this regard, the taxi will have a capacity for four people. Reaching your vehicle specifications, the dimensions of the spatially skillful chassis will be 3 m (length) x 1.7 m (width) x 1.8 m (height), with a total weight of only 1200kg.

With regard to transmission of low emission, the taxi is fed by a 36 kW electric motor and wheel hub motors, complemented with a battery pack resistant 120 kg (which may be charged a rear power). The ability to maneuver will be dictated by a compact body with rear wheel steering mechanism. More importantly, from the perspective of the efficiency of fuel, the car will have a significant range of approximately 180 km on a single charge.

Now, coming to the spatial attributes, Meek have a variety of settings for optimized comfort of its passengers. In illustrations of concept, we can see that the minimalist aesthetics is accentuated by a glass of sober but tough aluminum (such as a roof structure) frame. The seats are to be ergonomic, with a range for the area of additional seats (if necessary).

 And with a sense of the allusion to the satisfaction of passengers, the designers have also thought of effective accessibility, which could also serve as wheelchair-dependent people.

Finally, expected that the system as a whole as a collective solution to public transport. This means that the Meek may call easily by smartphones, by entering the destination and foot the Bill. The vehicle can also receive a request to share someone else's if your destination is located on the same route. Now, if you choose this passage, the trip becomes more profitable for all passengers on board. This approach will also make the taxi more affordable and sustainable in the long term.
