    Frankfurt 2005: Peugeot Moovie Concept

    Auto Shows: 2005 Frankfurt Auto Show IAA
    Peugeot Moovie Concept

    Peugeot runs a worldwide design competition, for which the prize is awarded at the Geneva motor show in the spring. Then the company builds a full-scale concept car in time for Frankfurt in the fall. The Moovie is an agile and environmentally friendly city car designed by a young Portuguese, André Costa. Among the innovations are dual-function doors that house gigantic rear wheels and slide forward to access the two-seat interior. We aren't sure, however, about the dynamics of the rubber band rear wheels and the tiny fronts.

    Well, this is just about the most creative concept I've ever seen! I love when designers start fresh with new concepts in automotive transportation! Of course it'd never be built... but the fact that they came up with it in the first place is exciting enough!

    I think that this is a very interesting concept. A neat idea also, but the poor thing looks like it wouldn't be able to function on anything rougher than linoleum! But still, very interesting. Another thought has come to mind, how on earth is this thing powered? It doesn't look like a motor (gas or electric) would be able to fit anywhere!

    Oh Chase, there you go being all practical, expecting it to have a motor! Hahaha! Good question... not sure... it pretty well has to be electric. The wheels are very cool. I like how clear and open the vehicle is. Image the wiper on that!

    Linoleum! That's funny!

    I think that looks cool. very futuristic. Maybe they will build it in 10 or 20 years.
