Vieria Concept - Interesting Engineering

Vieria Concept

October 25, 2012

This conceptual vehicle offers one different point of view over the pollution problems in the big cities. It was designed by Gunwoong Kim and Suji Kim and is equipped with an air filter under the passenger capsule. So here is what we have: fully electric vehicle that ingests dusty and dirty air purifies it and releases clean and breathable air. Sounds good, right? Well, a single car would probably clean small and maybe insignificant amount of air, but imagine thousands of vehicles purifying what you breathe every day?

Another good feature is the vehicle’s mobility. The wheels have the ability to contract and expand slightly in order to fit the vehicle on the highway or in small city streets. However, this is not a really existing car but a virtually created concept. The South-Korean guys that created it hope that their creation would come to reality sometime in 2021.

Gunwoong Kim and Suji Kim participated in Michelin Challenge Design with this project. This competition was started for the first time in 2002 by Michelin North America and is getting more and more popular with every year in which is held. There you can see the best conceptual ideas and see a variation of how the future would look like.
