Remora Concept Car

( Product Design Exercise - Transport Design )







Todays electric vehicles (EV) cater to a specific market of users. Namely people who can work around significant charging times (8-hours), and have a lockable enclosed space in which to plug in their car for that duration. Making using a vehicle without a garage difficult.

The Remora concept car has a detachable battery and drive system as a means to provide a solution to issues of recharge times and accessibility associated with current day electric cars. As typical electric cars require you to park your car within a power cords reach of mains power, the Remora can simply detach its proportionally sized battery/drive unit, which independently drives itself to a recharge point using wheelchair access ramps. This allows the user to be able to park on a street, while knowing that they can charge their car at the same time.


With a detachable battery comes the advantage of swapping out your low battery for a fully charged one, the Remora can facilitate an automated wireless management of multiple battery/drive units, ensuring that the user is never caught short of a fully charged battery.
