Motivated by the fact that 90% of all cars use two-and-a-half tons of steel to transport just 1 person at a time, aeronautical engineers Chris van den Brink and Harry Kronen took the challenge of developing a new vehicle which would counter the growing problem of congestion, while being ecologically viable at the same time.

In trying to create a narrow, bullet-like model, they were faced with the challenge of creating an automatic stabilizing system that would allow for the vehicle to corner like a motorcycle, without losing its balance. And thus was born the pioneering Dynamic Vehicle Control system.

With an exceptional field of view from within its rounded frame, and its unique, tandem 2-seater design, the Carver resembles the sumptuous lines of an F16 fighter plane, complete with the sound of hydraulic pumps ensuring the cockpit never exceeds it’s 45 degree angle.
