A fibreglass electric car with a wooden steering wheel

Azulik Mobility and Roth Fablab developed a prototype electric car with no doors, a fiberglass body and a wooden steering wheel.

Called EK, the prototype car has an open setting and a curving body that draws inspiration from organic architecture. The vehicle can seat three people. Two passengers can sit on the sides with their legs stretched in front of them, and a driver. The body of the car is made of fibreglass with polyurethane foam casting. The steering wheel is made of tropical zapote wood, as are other details.

The car is made for Azulik’s real estate property, Azulik Basin. Its maximum speed is 40 km/h and can reach up to 100 kilometres on a single charge. The charging time is between eight and ten hours.

The car design is by Azukil Mobility, and it was manufactured by Mexico-based Roth Fablab. The materials are locally sourced and they worked with local craftsmen.
