Armadillo-T - Foldable Electric Vehicle

Researchers at the Korea Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) have unveiled a prototype electric vehicle (EV) that can fold itself into half. The drivetrain is so compact and free of features like exhaust pipes, driveshafts, and transmissions, allow the Armadillo-T to tuck the front half of its body into the rear “shell”, halving the space it takes up. When folded, the EV shrinks from 2.8m down to 1.65m. Armadillo-T weighs 450kg, has a maximum speed of 60 km/h and traveling range of 100 km.
