The Peugeot Capsule is a design study of a compact single-seater off-roader inspired by motorcycles and targeted to adventure lovers. The author is industrial designer Alp Germaner from Johannesburg (South Africa).

Peugeot CapsuleCreated as a personal design study by Alp Germaner, the Peugeot Capsule is a compact off-roader that can transport a single person and offers enough luggage capacity for overnight trips.

The main inspiration came from Alp’s KLR 650-A motorcycle, which "is known to be a reliable mule that inspires people to ride out and explore."

"The idea was to create a fun vehicle that has character and offers a sense of freedom and easy communicating technology, delivered by a single touch screen multi display."

"Full internet satellite connectivity means the vehicle cannot be lost or stolen."

Peugeot CapsuleThe single horizontal screen wiper is mounted on side rails which run along the A pillars, and also act as water channels.

The powertrain adopts all-wheel drive system and electric motors.

A roof-mounted solar panel contributes to recharging the batteries; the luggage is removable, so that "it can be taken next to your tent and used as a stool/desk."

This system includes GPS navigation, and connection with other Capsules.

Side mirrors are replaced by external cameras which are connected to LCD displays inside the cabin.

"The vehicle is targeted at people who loves nature and enjoys outdoor camping and adventure. If it was to be manufactured, I can easily see it being used as a commuter as well."
