The designer Iranian, Mohammad Ghezel, loves to create futuristic designs. eRingo is the concept of an electric car that looks like a huge wheel. With two control wheels when they change the control of the direction, the other wheel locked, so they can take turns at the helm of the car without having to change places.

In an interview with Wired magazine, Ghezel said he did not care if the car design is not very practical for today, because no limits to the creation, and believes his project is not impossible to come true.
