The BMW Lovos is quite the piece of art when it comes to bring nature all the most closer to our day-to-day lives. We know that the concept of environmental friendliness is the motto for future developments, but this particular design is more than just a friend of nature, it’s nature itself. Or at least an inhabitant – the porcupine. Graduate of the Pforzheim University, Anne Forschner designed the BMW Lovos not to look excessively wild, but also to be capable to shapeshift. This is due to its structure, built out of 260 individual and fully exchangeable parts.
With the help of its movable parts, the BMW Lovos could look either a porcupine or a vehicle covered in fish scales. What’s even better is that these parts are actually photovoltaic panels, which capture sunlight and transforms it into electric energy. They also function as airbrakes for better control. Although the exterior might look a bit rigid, its interior is designed to bring as much comfort as possible for the driver and passenger. Ever thought that the Sun’s movement wouldn’t fully charge your solar-powered vehicle? You can forget that when having an BMW Lovos. The photovoltaic panels follow the Sun’s movement even when the car’s stationary.
As you might have guessed, BMW Lovos is a two seater, so apparently it’s going to attract less families, but more independent people and youngsters. What’s funny about the vehicle is that it reminds the older generations of the cartoon Wacky Racers. The concept does look rather wacky, but you have to give credit, many designs have their particular aspects which reflect full wackiness. BMW Lovos shows promising aspects regarding its functionality, as recharging has always been an issue for stationary situations. We bet Anne Froschner’s BWM Lovos will be one vehicle to remember and who knows, we might just as well encounter one on the road. Does the BMW Lovos look wacky to you?
