We at SwipeLife have long been aware that not only does form follow function, but that often creativity is spurred on to greater heights by the challenges of meeting strict, functional requirements. The CarGo delivery vehicle concept, from Adam Schacter, a freshly graduated automotive designer from the renowned Transport design course at Coventry University in the UK.
If the execution looks a little like the result of an illicit night of passion between a Smart ForTwo and a John Deere, the concept is admirably focussed. The length and width of the CarGo can be adjusted between different modes to allow it to adapt to different loads and traffic situations and hub-mounted electric motors help with packaging maximum load-capacity within a footprint that could comfortably squeeze down some of the narrowest European city centre streets.
Schacter’s design has highlighted an interesting niche that could not only be the perfect tool for a host of small businesses and start-ups but also something that could be a vital ingredient in creating that holy grail of city planners, mayors and urbanists the world over, the bustling, dense and most of all, sustainable, downtown. Is the future of Motown CarGo?
