“In the concept of a “vehicle in vehicle” we focused on the function. We constructed the model to surround the user sitting in a manual wheelchair, than added ergonomic operating and functional units. We used soft lines on the outside. The inside space is friendly, controlling and operating units can be reached easily. The driver feels secure even in city traffic, furthermore he drives an attractive Ã¢â‚¬Å¾car”.
