How hard is it to design a car?!
For the last 2 years i have been working on a single design and it still overwhelms me!
The challenge is great - to design an electric car, i mean really design not just style it.
When i say really design a car, this includes designing the underlying structure, suspension, electric power-train, cabin, all the way down to how the brake rotors attach to the rims. All of which takes a lot of reading and thinking - how will the power train couple, how the power-train will influence the rotational momentum, how to mount the suspension to have optimal geometry and how will affect the structure stiffness, how will someone get in comfortably, how can they close the door easily, the list goes on and on, full of engineering and ergonomic dilemmas. Then on top of all that, how to wrap all of this in a body that provides access to all the necessary components, follows the heritage of a brand, is aerodynamic and most importantly captures the human imagination.
Yes the challenge is great and it feels like im stuck on this one car and cant move on, but i cant leave it to the greedy bastards to keep on making archaic cars.
Fire has been a double edged sword for human kind; it brought us heat and light but on the darker side our dependants on this has brought a lot of evil, from war to global climate change.
