VELOMETRO VEEMO (2014-2015)

Magnovate PRT

In 2014 Kody Baker and his team of engineers and designers out of Vancouver BC contacted me to help with the design of their 3 wheeled 'velomobile' or 'velocar'. It was a great project aiming to make a friendly sporty electric pedal assist car sharing vehicle and will be on the Vancouver roads mid 2017.

We fulfilled the goal of designing a roomy single seat velocar that gives comfort and confidence to the driver. The design brief was set to design a friendly, sporty vehicle with a hint of retro to it. The round soft elements give it that friendly almost VW Beetle familiarity, but with the right angles and forms it still achieves a unique sporty aesthetic. As with all 3 wheeled vehicles getting the visual balance is a challenge, but we succeeded with the proper proportion of forms and use of darkening the base. The Veemo is having great success in gaining support and excitment for it's launch in 2017.
