Alternative energy calls for a new kind of vehicle architecture.
A vehicle with efficiency, safety, and unmatched stability.
Was designed for efficient high-speed travel, the exterior of the C-1 is both approachable and simple, enveloping you in subtle curves, softened volumes, and expansive glass.
C-1 is fully-enclosed, protecting you from the elements. It has all the comforts you expect from a car, like climate control and a premium sound system
The C-1 is designed to transport you and your daily essentials, with room for a passenger when needed.
With car-like safety features – seat belts, multiple airbags, a steel-reinforced chassis – along with their gyro stability system, the C-1 gives you the safety of a traditional four-wheeled car on two wheels.
The best innovation is their patented gyroscopic stability system. They use electronically-controlled control moment gyroscopes (CMGs) to generate thousands of ft-lbs of torque. The gyros are controlled by the vehicle, allowing it to lean itself into and out of turns, and stay upright when stopped–even in a collision! Their gyro system is the key to bringing the safety and interface of a car to a two-wheeled platform.
The C-1 uses high-torque in-hub electric motors, saving space and providing a responsive driving experience. These motors regenerate energy while braking, using a KERS to store the energy kinetically in the gyro flywheels.
