CU-ICAR - Deep Orange 1 Concept
DO1 “Future Electric Mobility” (completed in 2010, BMW Sponsored). DO1 focused on the integration of powertrain, energy storage, seating concept, and infotainment elements in one vehicle. A baseline vehicle was converted into a range-extended, plug-in hybrid-electric vehicle with a unique seat attachment architecture that mounts the seats backrest to both the roof and floor of the vehicle. In addition, the vehicle interior relied solely on a portable Smartphone device, in combination with a cloudstorage concept.
