Nexo Urban: An example for naijacar

The nexo urban car project is a concept that follows closely to what naijacar is trying to achieve. It was the second price winner of the 2006 Innovar Inventions contest in argentina ( a contest that nigeria should emulate) It was design by Indutrial designers Ernesto Frias and Nicolás Alem. The car uses simple forms for easy production, a bunch of similar parts, and symmetrical door assemblies to increase economies of scale. it can be adapted to suit any market application. There are many ideas in the project that are similar to the naijacar project. Its great to see people in other developing countries are exploring such a concept.
