MA work

My degree project concentrates on rural area development in Northern countries. The concept is an efficient, next-generation vehicle for Polar areas. Coldness, rugged roads and long distances create special demands for the vehicles in use, and the concept will be designed with those unique demands in mind.


People living in areas that are too isolated to be connected to the national electricity grid have to give up some obvious conveniences that city folks have. This makes living in rural areas more challenging and less attractive. The objective of this concept is to offer mobility and energy for the remote community.
