Peugeot ONE Concept Car: A Giant Gillette Razor On Wheels

In what may seem like the latest marketing push from Gillette (now with five blades and wheels), we have a new concept car that takes automobile design to a strange new level. The Peugeot ONE is a single-seater ride that uses solar energy captured by its long windshield to power itself.

The design was created by Omar Ivan Huerta Cardoso who designed the car for eco city commuting. Apparently it would use a gyroscope system to ensure stability and features a rather unique suspension system that seems like it could cushion the body well during a sudden stop.

I’m not entirely sure how you would get inside, but you know it’s gotta be cramped in there – which may be part of the experience. Apparently, it is called ONE because it’s designed to make you feel as if you’re at ‘one’ with nature. I don’t know about that, but it certainly may make you feel at one with the machine, like with the cramped cockpit of a Formula 1 car or a jet fighter.

It sure is an interesting design, but due to the long wheelbase for just one occupant, I don’t think it would be practical for the city driving and parking for which it was designed. If it could incorporate a folding mechanism like the recent BRB Evolution and M.01 car concepts, that would certainly help shave its parking footprint at least.
