Suppose we could walk around carrying our vehicles, how would our lives be different? Surely people would have more freedom. WALKCAR was born out of such an idea, of totally new mobility.
Your world will expand
more energetically and dynamically.
WALKCAR is a "car that can be carried around" that was invented in Japan.
Carrying around like a laptop, this car offers a life that is not limited to transportation infrastructure. The time has come when you can choose "walk" or "WALKCAR" at any time.
The same size as a 13-inch laptop
The size of a laptop PC gives it the portability to fit in a bag, and it is the best shape for safety. The vehicle height is just 74mm above the ground (about the width of a smartphone). The flat and square standing surface allows you to step off instantly in any direction safely.
Self-healing paint coated boarding surface is hard to scratch It improves grip and enables stable driving.
6.5lb The world lightest personal mobility
The body frame uses a “carbonaceous material” that actualizes “super light” and “smooth driving.” To give it enough strength to the four-wheel independent suspension, “machined extra super duralumin” material of a grade used in the aerospace industry has been used.
Development of the world's smallest In-wheel motor *1
*1 For in-wheel motors for single-seater mobile devices. As of May 2020, according to our research.
*2 Loaded 60 kg and value in our test environment
A special motor for WALKCAR has been developed after five years of pursuit. The body is wholly integrated through welding that reduced the space for screws and maximized the coil space to the extreme. It drives at a speed of bicycles at 16km/h and can drive up slopes of up to 10 degrees*2.
The four sensors installed inside the standing surface lets you control the basic maneuver based on you shifting your weight to accelerate, deaccelerate, and turn without using a handle or a remote controller.
It automatically stops at your footstep when you get off from the WALKCAR.
