Starck Design meets Electric Golf Cart = V+

Always on the hunt for new and green designs I came across a recent Wall Street Journal Style & Travel article interviewing one of my favorite designers Philippe Starck regarding his latest creation:  “French designer Philippe Starck hates cars. They’re noisy, dirty, anti-social, masochistic and they bring out the worst in people, he says. He recognizes, though, that people sometimes need locomotion. To that end, he has created an electric vehicle, which is on display this week at the Geneva Auto Show and will retail for about $40,000. The pared-down design of the V+ Volteis by Starck—it resembles a golf cart more than a car that could withstand urban use—seems to prioritize form over function. “If you look at the electric vehicles on offer today, they’re unbelievably bad. The designers are taking out the engine, putting an electric motor in its place and don’t really think about what it should look like,” says Mr. Starck.”

Super cute AND Functional! I am in. I will take two please. {one in grey and one in yellow of course}.

    Wonder if riding around in this golf cart would improve my game? At least I’d look fabulous at the 19th hole 😉

    Love it too! I could use one to bomb around my farm and haul hay around instead of trying to push bales around in my little green wheelbarrow. Thanks for a great post! Love it! xoxo
