Green Cab Electric Concept Taxi By Hazman Malik
The rise in pollution levels on highways has served as a catalyst in the development of clean electric vehicles. Taking advantage of the changing trends, industrial designers have come up with concept vehicles that can be powered by renewable sources of energy, to even reduce these high levels of pollution. Designer Hazman Malik has shared with us his new concept vehicle that can be used as a zero emission taxi.
Christened the Green Cab, the vehicle hasn’t been designed to provide a luxurious ride, but meets the demands of a simple tourist vehicle. The open-air concept and skylight roofing allow the passengers to enjoy open views while riding in a silent electric cab. The rear compartment of the vehicle provides space for battery storage, which propels the vehicle.
The electric batteries onboard the vehicle can be recharged by an array of solar panels and kinetic energy generators which harvest energy from the wheels. The designer hasn’t provided any technical specifications or performance numbers, but considering the lightweight design we expect to see some decent figures.
