As a research designer and academic of consumer automotive and transport design I have seen many trends; a very worthy trend currently being ‘sustainability’. It is one that the man on the street can contribute too as well as big industry, and the result of being sustainable is positive. We prolong the life of our planet and make healthier urban environments to live in.
An avenue of interest is attractive affordable sustainable personal transport that is comparable or superior to current vehicles, investigating:
- Consumer acceptability
- Recycling techniques
- Sustainable technologies
- Sustainable materials
Started a quick Pinboard on sustainable products. might be interesting to mock up a rendering with sustainable looking parts to use in some market research.
