Kaist Armadillo-T Foldable Electric Vehicle: Open to Drive

As cities are plagued with more and more traffic congestion, it will become harder to drive as well as park your typical car. The Armadillo-T will help alleviate the problem. The electric-powered vehicle was developed by the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) and it has some unusual features.

It was designed to reduce the amount of space used when a car is parked and not in use. This way you can fit more cars in an area or just claim more of your garage for other things. It uses a 13.6 kWh battery and can travel up to 37 miles per hour with about a 60 mile range per charge.

In order to have it fold just right, they ditched the concept traditional rear view mirrors and instead installed surround-view cameras. When closed its size goes down to just 1.65 meters-long. The rear end slides forward, folding up vertically. It can also rotate 360 degrees when folded, so that it can be moved about. Pretty awesome idea.
