“Performance” reinvented for a more sustainable world.

“Performance” reinvented for a more sustainable world.

Performance cars tend to be optimised for high speed, fast acceleration, and the associated visceral experience. But “performance” could also mean efficiency. Namely, a design optimised for low aerodynamic drag and rolling resistance. And just as fast cars have their distinctive visual cues, so can super efficient “performance” cars be appealing through a unique design that conveys this efficient identity.  

So it is with this design from Ben Asztalos in Germany.  His car, the Meili, would seat two people, low to the ground and in tandem for a reduced frontal area, in a body shape that tapers to a single rear wheel to minimise its drag coefficient. Recycled plastics and solar panels contribute further to both its sustainable credentials, and its hyper-efficient identity.
