New eco-friendly car design created
on Friday,August 05,2011 15:08
The Green Lite Motors, which is a company that creates vehicles that are better for the environment and made with as many sustainable products as possible, recently teamed with up with Autodesk Product Design Suite to create a three-wheel vehicle.
The car is technically classified as a motorcycle, even though it is completely enclosed and can accommodate two passengers. It can also go on the highway and reach speeds of 85 miles per hour. The vehicle also travels 100 miles before the little car needs to refuel, and it is all still in the design process.
"The Autodesk Product Design Suite has helped Green Lite Motors build the machine virtually to present an exceptionally strong vision of both the mechanical and aesthetic designs of our vehicle," said Tim Miller, president and CEO at Green Lite Motors. "In leveraging the capabilities of Digital Prototyping, within a few weeks we were able to collaborate with a shared Inventor model to create a design capable of being manufactured."
This hybrid vehicle will make less of an impact on the environment, and this design prototype will be digitally reconstructed before creation.
