How would you like to design your own electric vehicle? If the Trexa gets off the ground, you just might get the chance. Trexa is a modular all-wheel drive, all-electric vehicle platform that would come in three sizes, on which you can design the perfect vehicle for a given need-from hopping around town to making commercial shipping connections. From Inhabitat:
The Trexa platform offers an unprecedented level of versatility because it contains an entire vehicle's drivetrain within one low-profile enclosed structure. The platform is highly scalable, so features such as range, suspension, torque, acceleration, and top speed can all be tailored to suit the vehicle's intended purpose. For starters, the standard platform has an acceleration of 0-60mph in 8 sec, a top speed of 100mph, a 105 mile range, and a charge time of 4 hours (based upon an efficiency of 200Wh per mile - comparable to a Prius in electric mode).We have no word yet on price or release date-both rather critical pieces of information-but as a concept, it's undeniably compelling.
