Alexei Gontsov, 22, is currently pursuing an Industrial Design degree from the Polytechnic Institute in the Republic of Moldova.


APEX was designed to create the small car for a big city. In today’s modern cities, it is not comfortable to ride in large vehicles. APEX is a small-dimensioned vehicle with a riding off back door, which allows for easy parking on city streets. The bold design is expressed by breaks in form. APEX is a four-passenger vehicle but it is possible to remove parts of the interior to enlarge the volume for baggage. It could also be available as a 4 x 4 all road vehicle.
