Concept of the Day: Casple-Podadera

February 22, 2013 § Leave a comment

Casple_Podadera_EV (4)A rival for the Hiriko? Francisco Podadera‘s folding concept, backed by industrial group Casple, is a Twizy-esque two-seater buggy which pivots up to mark in a motorcycle-sized space. It has a tubular frame and composite body panels with swing-up or removable doors; it has a range of around 80 miles and can do 66mph. Petrol or hybrid powertrains could also be accommodated in its flexible, modular structure. Podadera reminds us that the folding car is not a new idea, however: remember the Matra-developed Renault Zoom (also an EV), seen at the 1992 Paris Motor Show?
