MET electric concept features swappable rear wheel battery

Two of the biggest problems with today's crop of electric vehicles are maintaining a charge and delivering the juice. Designers of the MET Concept have taken a stab at both these problems in one fell swoop.

The three-wheeled people mover features a removable and interchangeable back wheel that's integrated with the battery pack, allowing the entire unit to be switched out at will for a freshly- juiced wheel/battery combo. While there are still plenty of real-life challenges to face when owning a small EV, the designers and the adopters have to evaluate their habits, and with that in mind, designers have made the MET a solo rider – maybe two in a pinch – explaining that it's for "single person families of the future."
