Synthesium Electric roadster design

Personal project
Conceptual project of an electric sports car for 2028 made as a thesis at Coventry University.

The subject of considerations during the development of the concept were changes that are currently taking place in the automotive industry. More and more often we see seemingly ordinary sedans developing similar - and sometimes even better - performance than vehicles that until few years back had a monopoly on the name of "sports", status of which is usually a large, tuned up internal combustion engine.

The Synthesium project is a proud declaration of electricity as a power source, and - at the same time - a desire to emphasize the distinctiveness of a sports car through uncompromised body styling. Limiting the elements that increase comfort to the necessary minimum and treating the open interior of the car as part of the body. No roaring engine – sound of the wind instead, as a natural indicator of speed and acceleration. Additionally, taking advantage from the possibilities offered by the continuous development of 3D printing.

The final design is characterised by a non-standard approach to the necessary functional elements such as roll-bars and exposed vehicle electronics.

Polygonal model based on which the surface Alias model was developed.

Synthesium, or synthesis. The design language of the body, which is an attempt to capture the euphoric emotions present during fast driving and transfer these into a three-dimensional spatial form.

Based on the CAD model, a physical model in the scale 1:6 was made.
