Wide body always been associated with more area for traction, stability and larger upper downforce of air flow movement.
In our design we do incorporate the above attributes and factor in our blue-print plus we added some surplus to take advantages of wide body feature that no designer ever notice it:
-Larger air intake/larger air ramp to create Bernoulli effect into the chassis to lighten the upper inner chassis pressure and increase downforce below the wheel hub. This create artificial lower center gravity by increase the weight below the wheel hub due to increase atmospheric pressure from force air intake into the chassis. Which means stability and ground control. Which is why our side vents are bigger than conventional design and have bigger air exhaust vent on the rear of every conceptual models built.
-More impact space between external impact and the cockpit = longer impact time. For example CYBORX and EXODUS have wider and bulky sides when compared against the width of a standard sedan door width. This provide cushion against impact thus create resistant which slower the time of the inertial impact before it reached the passenger inside the cockpit. My design always been very bulky in every corner the car body in order to produce slow inertial impact and stress crass distribution just like how TOYOTA company implement “GOA” chassis on their sedans like VIOS.
-When I say “Wide Body” in my design I usually refer to as bigger rear and proportional narrow front end curve as view from top/plan view. The reasons simply for straight-line aerodynamic purposes. Our rear body have higher side (left/right) off-set than the front which allow:
● Rear air vent/ramp to gulp air directly without obstacles
● Direct down force to the rear and high side drag to keep the rear wheel straight line rather than depending solely on wheel toe-in setting.
Usually our wide body design carries the “V” or “A” design factor (the Arrow Head design efficiency…slicing the wind rather than brick and block it.).
-More space inside the cockpit allow more area for the passenger and driver to be “relief” and avoid sudden G-force impact on their body by providing a slingy attachment to the base of the seat to self bungee horizontally upon impact like an Elastomer cushion under the building to absorb the earth quake tremors technique. The big void around the passenger due to wide body feature allow the seat to move about to slow down the G-force impact flat 360 movoement.
