Meet the Armadillo-T, a folding electric car!

Students at the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology have developed a small, folding electric car named Armadillo-T after the animal that rolls up into a ball when threatened. The ''T'' at the end refers to the Ford Model T, which served as inspiration to the designers.

The Armadillo-T has four in-wheel motors driven by a 13.6 kWh battery. It can reach a top speed of 60 km/h and offers a total range of 100 kilometres. Ten minutes of fast charging are enough to provide full battery capacity.

While standing just 2.8 metres long, the Armadillo-T can seat two adults. And once folded, it occupies a third of the space of a 2014 Honda Accord.
