15. RT1 Electric Car Prototype
It would appear that the “box” theme was the going thing for electric vehicles during this time frame. The RT1 was another prototype electric car that tried to market a mass-produced electric car. What made the RT1 unique was that it could comfortably fit four passengers, which was a first for an electric car at the time. The RT1 was envisioned as being a mass-transit vehicle, as opposed to a personal vehicle.
The RT1 had a decent range and could comfortably seat the passengers without feeling unsafe. The unique design was something that resembled a mini passenger bus. Luckily, electric cars have come a long way in terms of design and refinement nowadays. But back in the seventies, the future looked bright and there was a good deal of excitement over what future cars might look like. When it comes to unique electric vehicle concepts that hit the market, the RT1 was unique for sure.
