The ancient world sports some breathtaking architecture that was way ahead of its time, and some of the buildings constructed by ancient Greeks, Romans and Egyptians were possible because the architects of the time were efficient and innovative enough to use the wheel in the right possible manner.
So what has ancient construction to do with the modern automobile industry and the concept of the Peugeot Loop? Well, it is the design that has an uncanny similarity to the way wheels were used around 2000 years ago.
Peugeot Loop: Urban automobile revolution
with a green spin
It is said that the ancient Romans and Egyptians transported blocks that were required for construction from the mining site to the actual building site by just using them as an axle between two giant wooden wheels.
This innovative technique meant that there was plenty of space that was saved. It seems that the concept green car designed by Javierarturo Rivera takes a cue from the ancient concept, though it might be just a coincidence.
The Peugeot Loop is a vehicle for commuting in today’s cities and seems to be more tuned. It seems more like a mass transportation rather than a commuting vehicle. The Loop has a very simple body design as the seating space is nothing beyond an axle between the two giant wheels.
This does away with the construction of another exoskeleton for the vehicle, reducing both the energy put into the construction. It looks pretty cool and is also “cool” toward the planet by giving you a comfortable zero-emission ride.
The car is controlled by an integrated central post which can operate by using a remote. This offers a public transportation facility that can work well within a certain limited radius. The Loop can accommodate four people. Hopefully more such green design would mean that we can have roads filled completely with zero-emission vehicles in the future.
