To reduce the carbon footprint on the road, the SUIT is a vehicle that is tailored to the driver’s needs. Motorists will be responsible for their daily driving habits including the loaded weight of the car, and will be financially rewarded for positive behaviour. A web-based user-profile helps them to optimise their consumption.

‘…95% usage of your vehicle has one person in it, because we love the convenience of individual personal transportation. So we will absolutely need to make much smaller, lighter and fuel efficient cars…’
