We meet him OSV (Open Source Vehicle) project a platform to build our own electric or hybrid car. It is an Open Source project so we can download all the plans and information necessary to build, manufacture, modify and improve what we need.
In my faculty the urban legend ran that the most illustrious of his professors José Luis Manglano, the man who did not walk but rather levitated, had bought his Porsche 911 in pieces and had assembled it all by himself… well now we can finally imitate him; -)
Within the project there are different parts, the Tabby, which is the vehicle's platform, the Urban Tabby, the commercial and finished version and the engines to be used.
Tabby is a Open Source framework for Vehicles. Right now it is the Open Source part of the project. We can download and use all the information for the construction of the car. As they say with the necessary tools we could assemble the car in 1 hour
The cost of the parts would be between $ 6.000 and $ 8.000, about € 4.000 to € 6.000

It is ideal for learning in universities or other centers
It is the commercial part, a Open Source car that they intend to homologate to make it legal to go around with him. The Urban tabby can come as an electric, hybrid or internal combustion car depending on the engine we choose.

IHE the modulable Open motor
As we have said we have 3 types of engines, the electric, one hybrid and the other with internal combustion, all 3 come with versions Limited, Base y Performance, the one with the most benefits, the performance would allow any of the engines to reach about 80 km / h with about 15 kW of power.
The types of motors that we can buy to mount are:
IHE hybrid engine
Internal combustion heat engine
Although I have seen references to a version High Performance of 25 Kw I have not been able to find information about it.
Much more information in OS Vehicle, the official website of the project.
Cars at 50 years in sight.hich takes its name from the legendary Japanese warrior Mori Motonari
Mazda motonari rx
That takes the name of legendary Japanese warrior Mori Motonari
Designed as an extension of the body and 100% adjustable
It presents omnidirectional movement, 360º. Very interesting to see the concept of omnidirectional wheels
And the model that has made me fall in love
If you like the theme of futuristic cars, with a simple search in our well-known search engine you can see hundreds of car designs really innovative and for me really pretty, although I don't know if they will be very functional.
And also take a look at those that appear in Bing.
A last good link is LA Auto Show where you will see several models from Design Challenge
