The Space Efficient Vehicle (work title: New iSetta) is a vehicle concept development by Ralph Panhuyzen. The vehicle is part of the creator's overall vision on automobility in the near future. Three seats in offset position, a reduced width and a 3-wheel configuration result in a lightweight and streamlined vehicle. Less weight means fewer materials are needed for production and less energy is required for propulsion. The long wheelbase provides a comfortable ride and due to the seat positions all occupants are well protected during a collision. developed the SEV concept design and visualised the product. In 2008 it was submitted for the Michelin Challenge Design and elected as finalist.
