Designers invent economy class automobile
By Olga Bestuzheva
The car aims to attract young people on low and middle incomes. It is compact, with four seats and a rear-engine, using a frame and panel body, as is common in Belarusian industry, but has an unusual shape. Its removable transparent dome is a sunroof, a windscreen and a door, creating an interesting feature. The design optimises space and functionality while considerably reducing costs. Being of modular construction, buyers can purchase the basic model and add upgraded features at a later date. “This allows flexibility of car usage, while meeting the needs of each owner,” the developers explain.
The new car will be both comfortable and ultra-modern, built using the major principles of motorcycles. It will be bright, dynamic and oriented towards young people. “The flexibility of this passenger car enables us to present it as a completely new class compared to rivals on the market,” the Academy notes.
Its developers hope that the car will prove popular among Belarusian young people. A business plan is to be elaborated, with investors sought for the project. Pavel’s design was presented at a recent Belarusian Youth Innovation Forum in Minsk and was highly appreciated by famous Belarusian scientists.
