We have seen a couple of concept vehicles largely powered by electricity. But the fact remains that they need to be further bolstered feature-wise considering the problems of parking and in a way, traffic congestion.
Usually, you would see the Japanese be at the front of it all but it looks like the Koreans are slowly creeping in. That is after seeing this foldable electric vehicle called the Armadillo-T, something from the Korean Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST).
The unusual vehicle was reportedly designed to reduce the amount of space used and foldable when folks reach their point of destination. Apparently that should address paying for parking or at times, no parking spaces are available.
The Armadillo-T is powered by a 13.6 kWh battery and can travel up to 37 miles per hour with about a 60 mile range per charge.
In order to have it fold just right, they ditched the concept traditional rear view mirrors and instead installed surround-view cameras. When closed its size goes down to just 1.65 meters-long. The rear end slides forward, folding up vertically.
