We redesigned and electrified the classic Simson S51 from the east German cold war era. Our goal was to keep the simplistic construction, the easy and agile driving style and yet give it a modern core and futuristic look. The main body panel, which consists of one continuous piece of aluminium, wraps around the frame from three sides. In the back, underneath the seat, a drawer can be pulled out where all sorts of things can be hidden away. The batteries are accessible for charging and maintenance through hatches on either side of the vehicle. Slotted holes o er a modular mounting system for a variety of attachments such as bags and other transportation solutions

This project was developed with Simon Morgenstern and Sven Fischbach during my third year at Bauhaus University, Weimar.
