Peugeot Metromorph Concept Car designed by Roman Mistiuk - a BFA Graduate of Academy of Art University, San Francisco, has developed an astonishing vehicle “Metromorph” that will minimize if not eliminated the parking problem of the future. The concept car acts as an elevator to take you to the doorstep of your multistory apartment, at which point it becomes a balcony.
Here are the specific features of Metromorph from the designer himself:
Drivetrain- the vehicle is powered by two in wheel motors placed in the back. There are two battery cases on the back as well.
Interior- the seats are held by rotating arms which keep the seat level when the vehicle goes vertical or horizontal. When the vehicle is a balcony the seats are placed on a rolling base which enables them to become lounge chairs thus freeing up the interior of the car to make it a balcony. The interior is also left fairly hollow to accommodate the balcony mode.
Exterior- the car is designed to not look like a car vertically mounted to a building and still look like a vehicle when it’s on the road. So the wheels are concealed toward the inside. Rather than go vertically like many scissor doors today Metromorphs’ arms rotate closely around the vehicle allowing the doors to freely open in a cramped area like a garage.
