Based on the first two generations of PEV(Persuasive Electric Vehicle), we designed the third generation for the Changing Places Group of MIT Media Lab. We focused on the ergonomic design and the new features specific for the electric vehicle, such as three wheels design, removable canopy, adjustable seat, lower clearance bar, etc. As a result we built a 1/6 scale model and a full scale vehicle for our final ergonomic presentation.
