A few years ago, MIT’s Smart Cities project developed the idea for the City Car. You may remember the City Car – it’s the one that folds up into itself when parked, the one that opens from the front, and the one that takes up 1/3 the space of a normal-sized vehicle on the street. Back in 2006 it seemed so advanced that the Discovery Channel and the BBC both included it in programs depicting what the future will look like.
It’s certainly not the future any longer. The City Car can now be found in Spain. It looks a lot like the concept, and should help with traffic problems in some of Spain’s crowded urban areas. Read more about the car here!
