Role: Design Engineer
Company: GX
Client: Deregallera
Year: 2015
This visionary prototype was designed to showcase the client's advanced battery and motor technology in a fully wooden chassis and body which would return to nature at the end of its life cycle.
The three wheeled prototype vehicle was to be made from only wood for all main structural components. This was a drive to move away from conventional automotive materials, making this a truly renewable vehicle. Inside it features large screens showing camera views, replacing the need for real mirrors, and a central joystick instead of a steering wheel.​​​​​​​
The completed prototype can be seen driving around the track in Deregallera's promotional video below.
