Danish company Biomega, known as a producer of bicycles, presented its first electric car Biomega SIN concept, which was introduced in Shanghai, China. The small EV has an unusual minimalist design, as well as a modular body made of lightweight composite materials (including carbon fiber).
The name also puts it in line with the brand’s bicycles; that’s because all Biomega bikes are named with three-letter abbreviations of cities that inspired some elements of their design. Biomega describes its concept as the Crossover Utility Vehicle (CUV). It’s designed to get passengers and cargo from A to B “in the most efficient way possible, minimizing time, money and power spent.”
As you can see, the concept received the single window start in the front and ended on the trunk. There is another window located in place of the grille. At the same time, Biomega SIN has no doors, although it is noted that the serial model will eventually receive doors that may be transparent. The body shell is made of CFRP with aluminum crossbeams.
The minimalist approach to the design results in a roomy but rather austere cabin. Bolted on the flat floor are four independent bus-like seats with generous legroom. The SIN also has open wheels. It weights only 950 kg.
The EV is equipped with four electric motors with total output of 60 kilowatts. It accelerates from 0 to 100 kph (62 mph) in 13 seconds, and has top speed of 130 kph (80 mph). Biomega SIN is equipped with battery modules with a total capacity of 20 kWh. The range is up to 160 km.
The production of this microcar should be started at 2021-2023. Price tag will be approximately 20 000 euros.
