A new absolute eco-friendly vehicle with independent, low emission transportation possible for those that utilize wheelchair might positively be an improvement in this system. For this, an eco-friendly vehicle, like an electrical car which may steer through ninety degrees, so reducing the turning radius with low efforts must be outlined. Automotive of modern times doesn’t have the power to steer through ninety degrees. Such vehicles will facilitate disabled individuals effectively. Lots of researches are done on this field thus on implement this technique however it’s not yet been implemented. The concept is to use electrical motors on any two diagonal wheels and a counter phase system implementation. The mechanism works at low speed solely. The steering system uses rack and pinion in outlined gear ratios with the help of some bevel gears. The rear wheels are mounted in such a way that the power is transmitted even when it is being steered through 90 degrees. The vehicle is designed in such a way that it has facilities for disabled people to enter into and out of the vehicle without any external help. Even for people who depend fully on wheel chairs can easily enter the vehicle through the inclined passage provided at the rear side. Advantages of this system are that it can work in limited space and it reduces the time and effort for steering through 90 degrees thus making the system more flexible. It can be used for other applications such as parking, farm vehicles, trucks, forklifts etc.
