DAINAMI - future car 2025+

Dainami is an innovative and adaptive car, that can be used by individuals or groups like families. You can choose either to drive by yourself or to let the car drive autonomously. The approach was to optimize the space by freeing up the interior volume for maximum comfort and thus using it due to different needs. This creates a new picture of mobility as new opportunities to use time and space during a car journey emerge. Dainami not only reacts to the change in the future, but acts within the change.

This project was done in cooperation with brose.

Dealing with the issue what will change in the future lead to examining various topics. How will technology develope? Which needs will people have? Will possession be important or will sharing catch on? So far an average person owns around 9 cars in their lifetime. Would it not be possible to design a car that would respond to different situations in life and thus adapted to any needs?

After our research we decided to concept a car that would be owned but  while being adaptive making it easy to share with others and increase the longevity. Also while one can still drive the car, it has the option to drive autonomously, which will make it possible to use the time on the road.

Car can grow

Dainami has slats with an electromagnetic connection, that make it possible for the car to grow. By changing the magnetic charge, the magnets repel each other and the slats slide over each other.

The doors and the roof are made of electrochromic glass, which can change the light transmission with the help of electricity. As the car grows, the glass adapts itself to the field of vision. 

New space

The seats can be turned, making the interaction between passengers easier. This can be very helpful, e.g. it allows parents to take care of their children during a long journey. In this way the space can be used differently and a completely new atmosphere in the car is created.


When a passenger in a wheelchair wants to get in, a platform lift pushes out from under the car’s floor and drops to the street. The wheelchair user drives on the platform, which lifts up. The platform lift is connected to the car by an elastic fabric and is stabilized by two laterally mounted telescopic arms.

Battery swap

Dainami has an electric drive, while power is supplied by batteries which are placed in the front of the car. When the battery packs are low they can be easily exchanged at the battery swap station with charged battery packs (instead of waiting hours for them to recharge). This ready-to-use system eliminates one of the major barriers to electric vehicle use: the recharging time.
