In May of 2022 Visionary Vehicles hired Raptor Creative to design & develop the Bricklin 3EV. We began collaborating on the early vision, The brief was to design a cost effective, 3 wheeled vehicle with all of the safety features that a 4 wheel car is accustomed to and more. We also did not want it to appear like a 3 wheel vehicle at first sight, the impression was to be it is floating in the rear of the vehicle. The challenge was to make the car unique, yet still appeal to car enthusiasts. This was a design that customers would love to have in their driveway. We defined the surfaces of the 3EV in 2 months time as we needed to get the full-scale prototype built within 6 months. Additionally, the challenges of mating a manufactured chassis under a new body design were overcome with the skills and understanding of human factors, great attention was paid to headroom and creature comfort. Raptor developed the interior design as well as many of the functional features to be found on the prototype. Headlamps are unique to the 3EV and close attention was paid to detailing the jeweled components under the lenses. The 3EV is used by the client as a rolling showcase for the Bricklin brand.
