The Slide by Matthias Pinkert

Matthias Pinkert conceived this “city car” where the lone passenger and driver stand in an upright position. The concept vehicle called The Slide is meant for the crowded, chaotic urban environments where parking spaces are priceless, albeit temporary, possessions.

Needless to say, it is also a vehicle for short trips and individuals without a partner and a brood.

Implications - It would certainly feel strange driving a car in a standing position! Matthias Pinkert decided that if one person was driving a vehicle with four seats in it, it is almost a waste if they are completely alone. Being in 'The Slide' will put you at eye-level with walking pedestrians and people on their bikes.
