Peugeot Capsule concept - Click above for a high-res image gallery

According to South African designer Alp Germaner, the Peugeot Capsule concept is a single-seat off-road vehicle that was inspired by do-everything adventure touring motorcycles like the Kawasaki KLR 650. Unlike a motorcycle, though, the Capsule would provide for a modicum of weather protection, plus there's enough storage built in to allow for extended overnight adventures. Other interesting bits include a single touch screen that would control all vehicle functions and offer internet-enabled satellite connectivity.

Electric motors would provide propulsion to all four wheels, and a roof-mounted solar panel would help keep the batteries topped up on sunny days. Once stopped, a removable luggage rack would double as a stool or desk at the campsite. We'd be surprised if something along these lines doesn't go into production at some point as an eco-friendly replacement for the thousands of ATVs that are out roaming the back country at any given time. Check out the gallery below and click past the break for a short video.
