It’s stylish, quiet, environmentally friendly, and innovative, but is the Eggasus everything it’s cracked up to be? The mysterious egg-shaped vehicle is set to be launched sometime this fall.
As it stands, very little is known about this eco-friendly car or the people who have designed it. On their website, www.eggasus.com, they claim they have been in the prototype and “specialty gas and electric vehicles for over 25 years”. The mission of the Eggasus designers is simple which is “to create a vehicle for the future today. Zero emission with an eye catching, out-of-this-world design, Eggasus moves you quietly from place to place or building to building in an all-weather enclosure.”
The Eggasus is a personal transporter with a futuristic design. It is meant to be used in congested urban areas, campuses, and as a rolling billboard. It’s basically a 3 wheel scooter with an enclosure around it to protect the driver from the elements. It was a finalist in the “Manufacturing & High Tech” section of the Sierra Nevada Innovation Challenge, which is hosted by Innovate North State, a public/private partnership to build economic development for rural northern California. In the challenge, competitors had six minutes to convince the judges of their particular genre why their product will revolutionize the industry. Below, is a short embedded video showing off the “eggs”traordinary vehicle.
The Eggasus team has decided to fund their project using the social media route. They have posted a $50,000 goal on Indiegogo. You can help fund them at http://www.indiegogo.com/eggasus?c=home. The vehicle appears to be going for a starting price of around $5000. To be honest, it is hard for me to get real “eggs”cited about Eggasus because there are so many questions left unanswered. Hopefully, they will get more specifications about the vehicle posted on their website soon.
