Scooters and Electric bicycles they are fast becoming a popular means of transport in large cities due to their ability to avoid traffic jams, their compact size and their environmental benefits. The Indonesian designer Fajar Ismail and its "STELLAR" electric scooter concept provide new ideas for the development of the urban mobility market.
Primarily designed as a personal scooter for small and medium distances, STELLAR also includes a small solar panel as an additional charging system, to extend its autonomy and always have a small "reserve" available. According to Ismail (and also in my opinion) this set-up would be ideal especially for tropical areas, or those with enough hours of sunshine per day. Just one comes to mind: Southeast Asia, right Ismail?
A scooter ... stellar. Or solar?
Nomen Omen, the ancient Romans said. In fact, STELLAR is inspired by a spacecraft. It has a "layered" shape and a lightweight metal body made up of folded aluminum plates. The design is actually based on the chassis of the Quest Atom Alpha EV, a platform that explores the potential of various form factors in relation to electric scooters.
Consider it a personal reinterpretation of the theme.
The Indonesian industrial designer has in fact added several new features to improve both driving comfort and vehicle efficiency. Additional specs include a double spring fork, a headlight splash cover (which gives the scooter a not-so-that of Number 5, the "Short Circuit" robot), a spring-loaded seat and other goodies.
Here is a visual overview of the details:
