VESNA (Spring) - a single-seat electric car - is my concept of a new principle for the production of vehicles. The body is a one-piece natural resin composite with built-in wiring.

The driving wheels at the front have an offset center of rotation. They take the form of a reinforced, perforated rubber belt affixed to the electric motor. It is a non-synchronous electric motor that runs on a direct current with high-powered permanent magnets.

The motors are essentially geared cylinder, with teeth designed to match apertures in the belt tire. They use regenerative braking coupled with mechanical braking via cylinders outside the belt, for emergencies. Steering is achieved by redistribution of torque and braking on the leading wheels, depending on how the steering wheel is turned.

VESNA-GIRL. A quick and simple production process, with fewer parts and fewer different materials, provides ample opportunity for a modular exterior for VESNA. It is possible to use materials of different colors, or to arrange the wiring in different ways, to create the effect of natural materials: stone, amber, plants, and others.

WEELS. The rear wheel is a reinforced-rubber sphere. It fastens to a suspension clip which has four petals. Each petal contains a roller for free rotation of the sphere. The clip is connected to the main electrical system, making it possible to apply brakes or assisted steering on the wheel by means of the rollers.
The batteries are situated in the rear lower structure of the car. Access to the batteries is provided through the floor of the storage compartment.

ELECTROFLOOR. Refueling VESNA is possible directly on the parking lot through a special "electro-floor" - a network of wires leading to hatches with sockets on the ground surface. The working circuit is visible through a translucent resin layer on this surface.
