Canyon Future Mobility Concept

 

Due to the large amount of space required and the noise and pollution emissions, the usefulness of using conventional cars is increasingly being questioned, especially in urban environments. Not least during the Corona pandemic, it has been shown that bicycle traffic is a sustainable alternative for individual mobility.

However, conventional bicycles do not provide weather protection and are therefore not sufficiently attractive for many users to leave their own car behind, e.g. for the journey to work. In cooperation with the company Canyon and the Institute for Automotive Engineering at RWTH Aachen University, fka has therefore developed an innovative vehicle concept that combines the efficiency and sustainability of a pedelec with the weather protection of a car.

With its four wheels, the vehicle offers high driving stability, while the narrow width of less than 90 cm allows the use of the cycle path infrastructure. As a 1+1 seater, the vehicle is ideally suited as a commuter vehicle. The capsule can be closed in rain, partially opened in sunny weather and completely opened for ingress and egress.

Do you have questions about the project or are you interested in a cooperation? Then please do not hesitate to contact our experts.
