The concept of the car comes from wanting to make a public car for the urban environment. The 1,830 lb three-seater is a lithium-ion battery powered car meant to attract younger generation through features for example using one’s mobile phone as a start key. p70t Conch is meant to be used as an urban mode transportation in a taxi or car-sharing scenario.
