The Solid car was designed by Nikita Gutsalenko, a student at the Product Design and Transport Design at the Ural State Academy of Architecture and Arts, Russia. The aim of Gutsalenko's design is to help solve the issue of overcrowded parking spaces.

The concept car comes with the standard safety features such as seatbelts and airbags, but also comes equipped with more advanced safety features installed in the front and back of the vehicle.

"These elements provide additional maneuverability by turning around," Tuvie says. "They also are very strong in if a crash occurs as they take the damage on itself and thus saving the booth. The deformation of the Booth is prevented by a frame ring. In the interior, a display is installed thus creating a panoramic view. The Airbags installed in wheel of the car will operate at the side. With an approach sensor it turns on the auto brake system. The car creates the sensation of reliability as its image is associated with specialized machines, all we can say is welcome to the future.”

At this point, I believe the Solid is only a concept vehicle.
