    SAIC Design – the London-based styling outfit responsible for MG Motor – has presented the radical new Maze concept as a gaming-inspired compact EV which aims to “bring back driving fun to electrified cars”.

    Revealed as the UK returns to a more familiar way of life following lockdowns and other pandemic-related obstacles, the Maze has been designed in recognition of three key principles: “Play is important. Discovery is important. Adventure is important.”

    It’s aimed at a new generation of vehicle users, much like the recently revealed Cyberster concept, and draws heavily on themes familiar from “the culture of gaming” and mobile games. SAIC Design said it wanted to capture the “‘at home’ gaming scenario” and convey it in the form of a car.

    The Maze has been designed to take part in a ‘real world treasure hunt’ of digital art installations in cities, though it remains a digital rendering for now with no hit of production.

    The cockpit, accessed through a vertically opening glass canopy, comprises a pair of ‘zero-gravity’ seats, a video game controller and a screen, in a set-up reminiscent more of a personal gaming suite than a conventional car.

    The heavily angled exterior, meanwhile, is shaped around “computers that show off their components and celebrate their processing power”, while the short overhangs and compact proportions hint at its potential manoeuvrability in town. MG notes that the canopy door takes up less space than a normal side-opening door when open.

    As the Maze is a future-looking design study rather than a preview of a production car, details of its hypothetical underpinnings remain unconfirmed. SAIC states that it has multiple electric motors and an interchangeable battery, but has offered no performance details.

    It’ll never happen. Too many unavailable chips needed. Shortage is getting worse so the best thing we can do is dispense with chips altogether in cars. Taken together with 2030 deadline for no ICE motors, the chip-free, petrol-free, retro-fit system below is the way forward. No charging problems either. Just stick some coke in the boiler and away you go… toot… toot…

    I love it. I wonder if I can convert my series 2a.

    Seen a few steam powered cars on Jay Lenos youtube channel (Doble E-20 etc) – i actually kinda like the idea. Would be rather steampunk nowadays, which is also cool.

    Indeed. Let us not forget that the very first self-powered automobile was steam powered. Cugnol’s vehicle took to the road in 1769:

    Since it’s a three-wheeler, reckon it could be concept for new Invacar when Motability runs out of cars completely.

    What with the microchip shortages, fuel price rises, electricity price rises, AP increases and vehicle removals, random PIP refusals . . .
