Kim Minchul’s Peugeot Coaster looks like an all-terrain-vehicle from NASA, if we take into account the way its wheels are attached to the high raised chassis, the cockpit and its overall design. Unfortunately for NASA, the Peugeot Coaster is designed to hit the streets on Earth, and not Mars.
It entered the Peugeot Design Competition in 2007, although without winning a prize. Of course, all concepts have their own ups and downs, Peugeot Coaster’s case being the same. What’s important is that the Coaster is different from others. It’s a two-seater, with the driver’s seat being isolated from the passenger through a glass wall, to lower interference while driving.
Peugeot Coaster has a rotating system which increases its steering effectiveness. Turning in those tight curves becomes more satisfying at the Coaster’s wheel. Even though sources haven’t detailed the type of fuel the Coaster will be using, we’d take a quick guess and say Lithium-ion batteries. After all they are the most common used fuels by overall future concept vehicles.
From a technical point of view the Peugeot Coaster could use some more polishing, as it doesn’t really impress. We’d like to see more from it. The designer left too much room for extra-features and innovations.
It’s like the car is a first-phase sketch on four wheels. That doesn’t mean it’s not practical and useful the way it is now. On the contrary, the Peugeot Coaster has some strong points, no matter how much space it had left for improvements. It’s better off to have a vehicle with a strong ground, rather than having a complex vehicle with critical issues.
Let’s just hope innovations will never stop and more people will express more ideas, so that more designers will build more innovating designs. As long as ideas keep spreading, no past idea is lost. So is the case with Peugeot Coaster, a concept vehicle not lost or abandoned, but a key for future developments. Isn’t that right?
