For the Mondial de l'Automobile 2010 in Paris, France, smart, a subsidiary of the Daimler AG, decided to show two alternatives of electric mobility: an all electric scooter and an electric bicyle.
The design and development process started in June 2010 (tough schedule!) and went on till mid September. Fortunately, at that time I was doing an internship at the Advanced Design Studio of Mercedes-Benz in Sindelfingen, Germany - so I got the task of designing the bicyle!
Here are some impressions from the show in Paris, some press images and some sketches and renderings from the design process.
