The Box Share Car Concept Will Improve Congested City Streets

No one needs to be told that major cities are facing a bit of a crisis in terms of traffic congestion, but luckily designers are coming up with solutions every day, for a system like the Box Share Car suggests.

Brooks & Bone didn't feel that a compact automobile would totally be the answer to this issue, although the incorporation of an electric engine to enable a zero-emissions machine is definitely a winning feature. To truly reduce the number of vehicles currently on London roads, James Brooks and Richard Bone propose a cooperative program whereby their cubic subcompact can be shared by the greater urban community.

Such a system encourages people to borrow a car only when it's truly necessary, and speaking of necessity, the Box Share Car is optimized for function rather than form, and can even be programmed to communicate with an iPhone app.
