Abstract:This master’s assignment is about the design of a plastic body for Carice, the MK2, an electric cabriolet for two persons. This new body fits the chassis of the current car, the MK1. First of all, the profile of the company and the matching characteristics are investigated. Then car design theories and the influence of shapes and colours on the perception of design are examined. After that, the requirements, wishes and legislation for the new design are determined. Based on this research a new car design is proposed. The design of an optional rooftop and more efficient production methods are also considered. The final result is a body design that can be produced in a large production amount after a couple of technical changes. The rooftops are only worked out conceptual, since the main focus is on the body design.
