french entrepreneur eric prosé founded the manufacturing company synergEthic to produce 'tilter', an ultra-compact, zero-emissions vehicle designed to satisfy day-to-day needs and the demands of urban space without polluting the environment. the vehicle features custom technology that that registers input from twelve sensors to automatically optimize vehicle response
to difficult driving conditions. on exhibition during EICMA 2011, 'tilter' is planned for mass production and availability in 2012.
rather than requiring gasoline, the 440kg 'tilter' is powered exclusively by electricity. when the vehicle is fully charged, it may travel up to 120 KM. the top traveling speed of 'tilter' is 110 KM/H, attaining an acceleration of 0 to 100 km/hr (0-60mph) in 13.3 seconds.
the vehicle's aerodynamic body design caters to the maneuvering required urban drivers. similar in form to a covered scooter, the vehicle seats two people in succession. the vehicle's steel body measures 900mm wide, 2530mm long, and 1650mm high, maintaining the visibility of both the driver and those with whom he shares the road. 'tilter' is small enough to park in spacesdesigned for two-wheelers, and the vehicle's sliding track door system enables easy exiting even in tight parking spots.
