Contest Brief

Urban mobility market is booming. By 2015 thirty million scooters will be sold annually. People are buying them to move fast through urban traffic, to park where car can’t and to save on fuel. In the same time, many commuters don’t choose two wheelers because they’re neither comfortable nor driveable in all weather.

This niche is so big that manufacturers started to create vehicles just for them. Motorcycle companies experiment with bigger and automotive with smaller vehicles. They all fight for same people. We challenge you to create the most desirable urban vehicle of them all.
