BMW i1 – Electric Trike-Car By Amadou Ba Ndiaye
Want to feel the thrill of a motorbike ride but with the safety of a car, then you have ample reasons to feel happy as designers have been regularly creating concept trikes such as the BMW i1 – an all-electric three-wheeled vehicle designed for German automobile giant BMW. Conceptualized by Amadou Ba Ndiaye, the BMW i1 promises energy-efficient commutes on three wheels.
BMW i1 is a single seater, electric-powered vehicle with three motors giving power to wheels. Each wheel has an independent motor. As the BMW i1 sports three wheels, so the issue of wheel tilt is important to be sorted out in order to maintain the safety of the passengers. The wheel tilt in this concept car is controlled by computer calibrated hydraulic system. The chassis of the stylish and sleek BMW i1 is made up of carbon fiber.
It remains to be seen that when the car will hit the market but one thing is certain that whenever it will go on sale, it will find many takers among the car enthusiasts across the world. Who will not want to feel the joy of riding a car and the adventure of a motorbike in one vehicle?
