For many off-road drive lovers, planning a journey to Tibet is an ultimate dream. However, the eco-system there is quite sensitive and fragile. In this project I try to design a sustainable vehicle that could make us enjoy an expedition to Tibet while protecting such precious environment.
Research about future trends, about the environmental conditions, about emerging powertrain technologies and the Jeep brand helped me to establish my design concept. Package study, ideation sketches and clay modelling were used to develop both styling and functionality aspects of the vehicle. Digital modelling supported the fabrication of a quarter scale model. Storytelling was used to explain the concept and the situations that Jeep E-pic drivers could meet during their expedition.
The result is a self-powered all-terrain vehicle designed to carry two occupants and their expedition gear and equipped with various tools to handle eventual maintenance and rescue situations.
