Car in your bag.
"If you can carry a car"
The world's smallest electric mobility born from such an idea.
Commuter by train, from the station to your house, to your destination a few kilometers away.
The wider the area of movement, the more vibrant and prosperous people's lives will be.
We will also change lifestyles and the way cities should be.
WALKCAR changes the concept of movement
Run to slide on the ground
Exciting and dynamic movement
Experience that can only be experienced with WALKCAR
The timing of the next test drive event is "undecided".
"Strong and compact body"
This car, which you can carry around like a laptop,
Support your movement at any time.
Take it anywhere you like and from your bag
You can take it out quickly and get on immediately.
Also, because it can be placed upright, it can be charged or
You don't have to worry about the storage space.
13inch laptop size
Polycarbonate material with excellent impact resistance is used for the boarding surface. Furthermore, the surface is coated with a self-healing paint to prevent scratches and improve grip.
Carbon material is used for the main frame of the main body to realize an "ultra-lightweight" and "tough" body. It is 10 times stronger and 1/4 lighter than iron, and is supported by a carbon frame with a thickness of only 3.3 mm.
In addition, the highly elastic body itself makes it possible for the tires to firmly capture the road surface and enable "flexible driving."
Extra super duralumin (A7075)
The frame that supports the front and rear wheels uses ultra-super duralumin cut products that are also used for aircraft wings in order to achieve "lightness and strength."
"I want to go somewhere"
Minimal design concept
While having the function of achieving high running performance even outdoors, we have eliminated waste and pushed the lightness and storability to the utmost limit.
In addition, it is designed so that screws that impair the design are not visible at all, and the simple look enhances the fashionability as something to wear and carry around.
Coloring that blends into the blue sky and the city
Blue with the image of running under the blue sky with an active feeling.
A chic blue that blends into your cityscape and asphalt.
Finished in a color that shows both expressions.

Formal colors make it easy to match with any occasion, and a minimal and cool WALKCAR design
"Running performance beyond imagination"
World's smallest * 1 in-wheel motor
Newly developed motor for WALKCAR.
Welded joints have reduced wasted screw space and maximized coil space.

4-wheel independent suspension.
In addition to the vertical suspension, the front wheels are equipped with a front-rear suspension.
It softens the impact of uneven roads and steps, and achieves high running performance even with a small tire diameter.
