BASF SE, the largest chemical company in the world teamed up with DING3000 design studio (Carsten Schelling, Sven Rudolph, Ralf Webermann) to develop the e-velocipede ”Concept 1865”, a ready-to-ride prototype with an electric drive. The concept was born out of an experiment and virtual travels back in time to the year 1865, the year that the chemical company was founded and the wooden ”Dandy Horse”
invented by Karl Drais.
The prototype makes use of 24 of BASF’s innovative materials that are innovative electromobility advances, such as UltracomTM, Infinergy®, Elastollan®, Ultramid® Elastollan®.
