Green Ride’s INU – A Stylish Futuristic Urban Personal Vehicle
Inter-city commuting is one of the most burning issues of big cities. The commuters that use public transportation face the crowded buses and trains and those who travel by cars have to encounter nightmarish traffic jams almost daily.
As more and more cities limit the movement of cars within their boundaries, more and more urbanites are switching to alternative means of transport. While many modern-age solutions exist, the need for a clean, portable and efficient personal-travel vehicle has not been fully met. Here intervenes Green Ride, an Israeli team of automotive engineers and designers dedicated to create the ultimate eco-solution for personal transport in daily city life.
They have build INU, a portable electric vehicle that seems to be perfect solution for travelling within the city, combining the latest technology with stunning design. Unveiled for the first time this month at CES 2015, this eco-friendly bike is lightweight, portable and folds on command (you can actually give it a voice command or a hand gesture and it’ll fold).
Unlike similar vehicles, Green Ride’s INU looks great in the office or your home when it’s not in use. The INU’s designer has also worked for Italian car-design studio Pininfarina, so it looks just as amazing folded as it does in motion.
Designed to provide simplicity and comfort to daily short to medium length journeys, this green and elegant two-wheeler is capable of speeds up to 25km/h for 20km, 30km or 40km.
INU comes in 3 versions for which the battery and the size of the device varies. All of them are equipped with a phone dock, GPS and even GSM meeting the highest standards of personal tech in vehicles. While driving, INU will allow you to record videos, take pictures or selfies and even texting.
The stylish futuristic vehicle equipped with WiFi and SIM card slot will be available for purchase in Barcelona in the second quarter of this year at a price that will start around 2999 €.
