The electric-powered Armadillo-T was developed by the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) as a way to help reduce the amount of space used when a car is parked and not in use. Using a 13.6 kWh battery, the car is able to travel up to 37 miles per hour with about a 60 mile range on a single charge.To accommodate the folding feature, the designers replaced traditional fold-out rear view mirrors with surround-view cameras. Its size can fall to 1.65 meters as the rear part can slide forward, folding the two-seat doors up vertically. The four in-wheel motors also provide effective four-wheel drive, and enable it to rotate 360 degrees when it is folded.
