This vehicle as been designed to be much smaller than most, incorporating a bit of storage space, great comfort for the driver and a body that takes advantage of its compact cockpit.
Lightness and aerodynamic efficiency are refined to perfection in this single seater concept, the McLaren JetSet. Iconic McLaren styling in the front meets a futuristic backside fit with drag-reducing draped fenders and all.
Because there’s no rear seat, the body can taper narrower and lower to further enhance aerodynamics, while ultralight carbon fiber composites in the chassis, body, suspension and wheels keep the 100%-electric car’s weight to a minimum.
The concept measures just 3.7 meters long and 1.03 meters high, and has a proposed drag coefficient of 0.20.
Merenmies’ JetSet won her second prize in last year’s International Design Awards for concept vehicles that use alternate fuel sources.
