Foldable Electric Car Could Help Solve Congestion, Pollution

Boston (TGW) – Researchers at MIT are working on a prototype of a lightweight, stackable, foldable, electric car.

The City Car would solve many problems at once: congestion, pollution, and energy use, is about the size of a golf car, and would be shared by many users.

Hundreds could be stacked around a city and "you would just go and swipe your (credit) card and take the first one available and drive away," said Franco Vairani, designer of the vehicle's foldable frame.

Team leader Bill Mitchell predicted that the car would hit the production line within four years.
