Woody is a concept car. It represents the serious and thoughtful handling of some of the biggest ecological problems of the present, it offers the options to discuss topics such as:
• Reduction of CO2 emissions in the automotive construction and traffic
• Expansion of sustainable, decentralized production structures and product cycles
• Reduction of traffic and the associated burdens
and shows that solutions for these types if issues can be found and implemented. Woody is a special designed e-car used for short distances. Due to its open design Woody allows the direct communication between the road users. This feature promotes with considerate driving habits and it offers an easier way to pick someone up along the way. Woody is not an „extended living room“, not a private room, maybe not even private property. Woody is open for everyone.
Woody is technically and constructively clever, but not complicated. The manufacture and maintenance of the vehicle can be performed with small-scale craft with common means of production. Woody will be produced for its intended use, directly on site. Local, decentralized production lowers the energy usage for the production as well as the transport costs for components. In addition, this mode of production leads to a strong Identification of the population with the vehicle. The entire value creation and the generated know-how becomes a benefit for the region.
