Abstract [en]

This thesis concerns the implementation of car sharing technology into a semi autonomous future city sportscar. The vehicle is aimed towards the young rebellious generation who will be living an urban, compact lifestyle. The goal was to create a design language and practical supporting features that would appeal to the target group and express sharing technology.

The car can change its visual expression depending on the mode or kind of use. The trunk window is a transparent screen displaying information about availability. In order to enter the car, the window scans the user’s iris and recognises if the person is a subscriber of the service. While using the car, the trunk window turns opaque and the front windows turn transparent.

Methods used during the design process included research, sketching, package study, clay modelling, CAD modelling, final visualisation and a physical model.
