Carports Of The Future?
Carports come in all different shapes, sizes and designs. Our approach to designing carports is to carefully consider the look and feel of the existing property and take these factors into consideration to design and implement a structure that fully complements your property.
This means that over the last 20 years, we have designed and built a wide range of differing styles, from single width to double width carports.
But what are the carports of the future going to look like? With the likes of Airbus promising to deliver a flying car prototype by the end of 2017, you can only wonder as to what the future designs of garages and carports will look like.
Airbus promises flying car prototype to be ready by end of 2017
Flying cars may not be that far away, with the Airbus Group planning to test a prototype as a way of avoiding gridlock on city roads by the end of the year.
The aerospace group’s chief executive announced plans for the self-piloted flying car during a digital tech conference in Munich.
Airbus last year formed a division called Urban Air Mobility that is exploring concepts such as a vehicle to transport individuals or a helicopter-style vehicle that can carry multiple riders.
In all likelihood, this will take several more years to become the norm.
In the meantime BMW have designed a solar powered carport which utilises the power of the sun to fully charge their i3 and i8 electric vehicles. Looking at the design and style of this carport it looks like the future is already here!
BMW gives the i8 its very own solar carport
BMW Group DesignworksUSA has designed a solar carport to house the new i3 and forthcoming i8 electric vehicles. BMW is revealing the one-car solar garage concept as part of the official media launch of the i8 in Los Angeles.
The concept follows previous efforts from the German automotive giant to power its “i” sub-brand using renewable energy. It last year unveiled a similar carport system conceived in partnership with the photovoltaic firm SOLARWATT GmbH.
But for those of us who don’t happen to have a BMW i3 or i8 series, don’t despair! Our carports provide some of the highest quality workmanship and are custom tailored to complement your property to suit any type of vehicle.
