South Korean 'Armadillo' car folds up for easy parking
DAEJEON, South Korea (REUTERS) - With a click on a smartphone, the experimental "Armadillo-T" electric car made in South Korea will park itself and fold nearly in half, freeing up space in crowded cities.
The quirky two-seater, named after the animal whose shell it resembles, may never see production but it is part of a trend of developing environmentally friendly vehicles for urban spaces.
The car can travel 100 km on a 10-minute charge and has a maximum speed of 60 km per hour.
When it comes time to park, the rear of the vehicle folds over the front, almost halving its body length to just 1.65 metres.
