Designed for mobility in urban cores, the
stackable car is for two passengers. New
transport stacks are placed throughout the
downtown to create a linked transportation
system that works within existing infrastructure.
By locating stacks in urban areas and vital
junction zones, the car allows the populace a
certain flexibility to merge mass transit
effectively with personal mobility.
This is an exceedingly resourceful parking
scheme, as the stack accepts inward bound
vehicles and recharges their power supply.
Similar to baggage pushcarts at airports, users
basically take the first completely charged
automobile at the face of the stack. These urban
vehicles are not a substitute for individual cars,
taxis, buses, or trains, but rather a new
archetype that endorses a communally
accountable and more potent means of urban
