NASA's e-Car can be move sideways like a crab

US space agency, NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) has developed the future vehicle called Modular Robotic Vehicle (MRV) at the NASA Johnson Space Center, Houston.

MRV is made with the boxy body design and without a roof. It also has a small size ie 2.1 meters long, 1.5 meters wide, and weighs only 907 kilograms. The cabin can be carried only two people. Power source comes from a battery that has a mileage of 100 kilometers for one recharge. Its maximum speed of 70 kilometers per hour.

The most unique thing of MRV is the use of a new feature, e-corners, which is able to make all four wheels can rotate approximately 180 degrees. This can help the driver when maneuvering in narrow streets. Because of the NASA design the MRV as urban public transport.

"This two-seater vehicle designed to meet the challenges and demands of the growing urban transportation. MRV is ideal because of its size small and agile maneuver which could provide an advantage in runs and on-site parking is limited," said Mason Markee, a spokesman for Johnson Space Center as quoted by the Daily Mail on Wednesday, April 16, 2015.
Until now there has been no further information about when this car will be produced as well as the selling price. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | DAILYMAIL | INHABITAT]
