CLEVER stands for Compact Low Emissions Vehicle for Urban Transport. This TRON-esque 3 wheeled wonder is about 10 ft long, 3.3 ft wide and 4.4 feet high and weighs 870lbs.
The wheelbase is 2450 mm, the track width is 835 mm. At the front there is a 17″ wheel whilst at the rear there are two 18″ wheels. As a result of its low width the vehicle is designed to tilt when cornering and has a computer-controlled hydraulic rolling system which results in a driving experience with zero lateral forces at tilting angles of up to 45°, similar to riding a motorcycle.
The CLEVER is a result of collaboration between TUB, BMW and several other automotive innovators to design a lightweight, low consumption, low emissions urban driving vehicle.
