Concept of Merge
To enhance public space utilization efficiency and reduce air pollution, an electric vehicle, Merge, is designed. The concept is to combine public transport systems and street chairs to construct an innovate public-individual transport system. Merge is designated to have a bike-like structure for more transport mobility and flexibility. Moreover, Merge is totally electric power supplied and able to transform into a street chair. By this design, Merge provides a mobile seat saving spaces for parking. Meanwhile, it serves a flexible and nearly carbon-free transport mode.
