Author
Abstract
The shape of today's vehicles on the actual automotive market is based on the packaging design of an internal combustion engine (ICE) that is very different of that of an electric vehicle (EV). In this paper specific form characteristics that express the difference between an EV and an ICE vehicle are researched and illustrated. Based upon these determinations, three different outer designs are applied on one and the same high performance electric vehicle, named KAZ. At first, KAZ represents a half box car that is shaped by two different units colored in 2 gray colors, two 'air intakes' are set in the front of the car left and right and secondly, KAZ is reformed to be driven on a traffic road. The third KAZ shaped with a renewed form design of the front panel, shows an environmental friendly and full electric powered expression.
