The car industry is on the verge of change and the traditional car may be about to be joined by different vehicles that are fitter for purpose as A-B personal Transportation. A person living alone may only need a solo run-about. A new company has been established to build a new superlightweight voiturette/light cycle car for one person plus large sportsbag (maybe 1+1?), using active, not passive, safety systems (to give it collision avoidance/mitigation characteristics). The vehicle may use a 300cc combustion engine or electric drivetrain. It will be very light in weight and fully enclosed. This is not a small car but more of a machine in its own category. (Think a modern day Messerschmitt Tiger).
To have a better sense of the task, I have included the full University Brief. You can see it below.
