Korean EVs are inspired by New World placental mammals
This is the Armadillo-T, and it's been developed by an associate professor from the Graduate School for Green Transportation at the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology.
Inspired, as you may have guessed, by an armadillo, it's an EV that can turn itself, er, outside in, which allows it to shrink from just under three meters long to 1.65 meters, taking up a third of a normal parking space.
The Armadillo-T weighs only 450kg, maxes out at 37mph, and can do 62 miles on a ten-minute fast-charge. But what if someone blocks you in when you're, um... flaccid?
