One man hopes to bring art and New Car Dealers together.
New car dealer hopes to bring art and cars both together
Kenny Schlachter is an art dealer and a gallery owner, who also has a very big passion for cars. With electric cars rising, slowly along with 3D printing, Schlachter expresses that he sees a future where cars will be more like works of art, that are created in smaller numbers, rather than being mass produced and looking pretty similar.
At Schlachter's lock up garage, which is in East London, he recently showed off his concept vehicles, two vehicles that have been designed by his associate and friend, Zaha Hadid, the internationally renowned architect. A three wheeler model that has been designed for motorway and city travel has been completely abandoned as it was impractical, Schlachter has said. He said that he is instead focusing his concentration on a four wheel concept, which has been designed solely to be a city car, with the range being a perennial problem for the electric vehicle.
The car dealer admits road safety regulations are another issue for electric cars
Schlachter also admits that road safety regulations are another issue for the project, though he did say that Zaha Hadid and himself are very willing to make allowances with their designs in order to meet them. Schlachter is still talking with potential manufacturers about the concept car. A boat that he also designed with Hadid meanwhile has begun a production run in Germany of 12, with two having already been sold.
There has been a lot of talk in the news lately about people not using electric car charging points. Many councils have stated that the electric vehicle charging points that have been set up in their area have actually been used very rarely and there is an argument about whether electric cars are moving so slowly that electric car charging points are a waste of money.
