P-eco Concept

P-Eco concept is designed by South Korean Industrial Design Jung-Hoon Kim. It is an electric vehicle. The electric car integrates four piezoelectric devices on the front and rear of the driver’s seat.

P-Eco concept is powered by an electric engine, the compact car features multiple chords that vibrate at a high frequency to produce electric energy, as soon as the vehicle sets in motion, to charge its battery, which increases the mileage (per battery charge) of the vehicle by a fair margin.


Jung-Hoon Kim, 33, is a senior student of Industrial Design at Cheju N’University, South Korea, with an expected graduation in early 2010.

He was a web programmer before going into his childhood dream of industrial design. He is currently preparing applications to apply for an MA degree course in transportation design. His ultimate goal would be to become a transportation designer.


“P-eco” is basically an electric vehicle but it has four piezoelectric devices on the front and rear section of the driver’s seat. When the vehicle moves, weights strained by multiple chords start to vibrates as high frequency and these vibrations translate to electric energy to charge the vehicle’s battery. Though it depends on the efficiency of piezoelectric devices, at least it will increases mileage per battery charge.

    This would be the car of choice if I want to play traffic light drag race, it will pretty much win everything on the road .
