This is a very good and not so futuristic concept in the personal transportation. As a part of EV design team , we had tried a similar compact 2 seater EV in our lab and it gave quite interesting results. The fold-able and stack-able concept is something really innovative and makes such vehicle very attractive as Public Transportation in the downtown areas of metropolis. The stack-able concept is mainly useful in vehicles for hire where the car on the top of the stack can be hired. Such technology needs to be commercialized very fast
