The Volteis V+ may first strike you as the sort of conveyance you might find on a golf course, touring the grounds of a large park or taking tourists out on wildlife tours. In fact, this concept car is proposed for urban transportation, encouraging drivers to consider travel in a very different light.

Designer Philippe Starck speaks of the way that consumers have come to appreciate automobiles, making specs like speed, cost, comfort and streamlined appearances the priority. This electric vehicle expresses divergent prime concerns, namely cost efficiency, lightness in weight and a respect for and a connection to the environment. The Volteis V+ uses less, wastes less and -- with just a thin windshield and a removable tarp top -- invites motorists to interact with the surrounding world on their journey.
