Peugeot 1001 Nimble - As Concept, the present Project intends to create a small electric Car, easy to drive and simple to be produced.
The Peugeot 1001 intends to be a compact and nimble vehicle, conceived for short travels, clearly a City Car.
The vehicle’s body rests on four equal spheres, sized approximately 350mm diameter, each one driven by two electric motors, magnetically coupled, allowing easy and free movements in all directions, including 360º rotation around itself, even on travelling.
An electric power supply, consisting of a rechargeable batteries set, installed on the vehicle’s floor, feeds all electric power demands, contributing, with its own weight, to improve the vehicle’s stability.
The access to the interior set is made possible by two lateral doors, remote controlled, each one operated by means of one special mechanic arm, witch provides two sequential movements: outwards travelling and upwards rotation.
Inside, we can find a sophisticated ambience, provided by white coloured materials, where the driver can enjoy an anatomic and stimulant navigation system.
Vehicle’s overall estimated dimensions: L – 1700 mm, W – 1400 mm, H – 1700 mm.
