Holy carbon footprint, Batman! It's an electric Batmobile!

A decade after the Nolan Batman trilogy ended, we now have an electric Batmobile in the form of Tumbler. It was designed by Nguyen Dac Chung, a 23-year-old architecture graduate from the University of Architecture in Hanoi.

Nguyen based his replica on the original blueprint. Nguyen and his team started with the frame made from steel and then moved towards creating the armor panels that form the body. A mixture of materials such as abs, composite, steel and carbon fiber make up the electric Batmobile. Parts of the Batmobile are handcrafted while some are 3D-printed for precision. The behemoth weighs less than 600 kg and is capable of highway speeds.

Nguyen also introduced sustainable tech to the Batmobile by integrating an electric engine and brought additional advancements such as automatic hydraulic doors operated by a remote control, and 4 tactical cameras for a near 360 view, particularly useful when navigating tight corners. It has a passenger seat too.
