The piston engine, a staple fixture in any mid-size Technic vehicle and up, will one day become a rarity. The immediate future of propulsion is electric, and it’s surely not long before Technic sets shift to reflect their real-world counterparts.

Previous bloggee and Master MOCer Thirdwigg is there already, with this neat ‘eHatch’, a small, all-wheel-drive electric hot hatchback.

A brick built ‘motor’ in each axle is driven as the wheels turn, the front wheels steer by both ‘HOG’ and the steering wheel, and the doors and hood open too.

Free building instructions are available if you fancy going electric yourself, and you can find them along with further details and imagery at both Eurobricks and Flickr.
