MINI BioMoke

By the Manufacturer

Designed by: Gary Shiu

OPEN-AIRED, GO ANYWHERE

The Mini BioMoke is an optimistic approach to the issue of global warming and sustainable design. Its go-anywhere capabilities allow you to travel though southern california’s exquisite landscape while its open aired cockpit lets you enjoy the temperate climate native to southern California.

SOME ASSEMBLY REQUIRED

Influenced by a history of hot rodding culture and the recent resurgence of prefabricated homes in southern California, the BioMoke comes in kit car format, encouraging user interactivity and lets the user be proactive in choosing an alternative fuel powertrain. The kit car format also encourages the reusing of mechanical components from previous generations of automobiles, promoting the practice of recycling and reducing waste.

SEED IMPLANTED SANDWICH PANEL

The body of the BioMoke is constructed from a single sheet of biodegradable sandwhich panel which is implanted with palm tree seeds. As the Biomoke ends its five year life cycle, its body composts to grow trees, cleaning the air previous generations of automobiles have polluted.

The biodegradable sandwich panel used to construct the body is implanted with palm tree seeds. As the BioMoke completes its life cycle, its mechanicals are passed onto future BioMokes while its body composts to grow trees.

EXHAUST OXYGEN All body components of the Mini Biomoke are formulated to biodegrade after a five year life cycle, never sooner. The sandwich panels used in constructing the Biomoke are implanted with palm tree seeds. As the Biomoke completes its life cycle, its mechanicals will be passed on to future generations of biomokes, while its body composts to grow trees.

Mechanical components are reused from previous generation Minis or bought from Mini or other sources. Buyers select which alternative fuel powertrain they want.

REDUCE The Mini BioMoke is an optimistic and minimalist approach to travel as it relates to the issue of global warming and sustainable design. Its go-anywhere capabilities allow you to motor through Southern California’s exquisite landscape while its open-aired cockpit lets you enjoy the temperate climate native to this region.

REUSE Influenced by a history of hot rodding culture and the recent resurgence of prefabricated homes in Southern California, the BioMoke comes in kit car format, encouraging user interactivity with customizable body panels and alternative fuel powertrains. The kit car format also promotes the reusing of mechanical components from previous generations of vehicles, and the practice of recycling and reducing waste.

RECYCLE Seed-Implanted Sandwich Panel Construction. The BioMoke's body is constructed from a single sheet of biodegradable sandwich paneling which is impregnated with palm tree seeds. As the Biomoke ends its five year life cycle, its body composts to promote tree growth, cleaning the air that previous generations of automobiles have polluted.

Imagine the hilarity of seeing people try to make them last 10 years if the mandate were dropped. :lol:

Why? It's only slightly longer than the BIKE on its roof!

In overall length, it's more than twice the size.

I dunno, maybe it's the proportions of the vehicle that are throwing me off.
