Abstract [en]

This contribution reports on a project aiming at exploring the possibilities of developing a modularised and sustainable light vehicle transportation system, as a part of a self-supporting system for third world markets. By developing a product demonstrator, the project will set up and explore the design space for such a vehicle. Furthermore, the departure from a single vehicle, designed for a performance corner, i.e. maximum load, range, acceleration and speed, can provide a high increase in the lifecycle efficiency of the product. Consequently, a much bigger vehicle than needed is seldom used, and a family can gradually expand their transport system, with their needs, and economic capabilities. To achieve such properties of a vehicle a modular system is proposed.
