Premium Low weight Urban Sustainable e-MOBilitY
Start date: Sep 1, 2013,
End date: Aug 31, 2016
"The Plus-Moby project is focused to the implementation of low cost and low energy intensity technologies to manufacture premium four wheel fully electrical micro vehicles (450-650kg and speeds up to 90+ km/h)) that can be upgraded to M1 configurations.•Technologies and methodologies developed in previous calls of the EU Green Car will be implemented in terms of low aero-drag and safe structural designs, system integration on powertrain, batteries, solar panels, energy management (Wide-Mob and P-MOB), design criteria to reduce electromagnetic emissions (EM-safety), customer demand (Capire,ICT4FEV).•Weight is optimised to satisfy maximum stability in all weather conditions including high lateral wind.•Materials and systems are selected to assure the highest EURONCAP standards applied in conventional cars for both front and lateral crashes. Safety cells concepts will be introduced with low cost structures based on the combination of pure retainable and self-adaptable mechanics.• Starting from a prototype having an energy consumption already demonstrated at 65Wh/km in the NEDC cycle, further reduction of energy consume is expected by enhancing the performance under pure electrical braking.•Altogether the average energy consume is expected to be lower than 40Wh/km in the NEDC cycle with most of the days fully run by solar radiation only in most southern EU countries.•The two motor electric powertrain addressed, which has been demonstrated to have the highest fail safe mode, within Plus-Moby it will be demonstrated to emulate, and for certain extent replace, both the ABS and ESP expensive systems.• The technology addressed will be implemented with low cost and easy to access manufacturing technologies.• A relevant role is given to SMEs and regional SMEs clusters to assure competing speed and commitment.• The partnership is organised in such a way that a new era of easy to produce low cost but high performance micro e-vehicles is opened across all EU countries."
