Maxi-Mini Car 840552

This paper investigates an alternate design for a small car with maximum interior space. The most advantageous design was found to be a three seater vehicle with a possible fourth seat. The driver is positioned in the center of the vehicle. All seats are movable front and aft and sideways and the trunk is variable giving maximum space utilization and versatility. The car has unique folding doors which swing up far into the roof for easy accessability to all seats. Space for 3 or 4 people is provided in a vehicle of less overall dimensions than current designs. Through use of plastic materials weight is also lower guaranteeing excellent fuel economy.
