“C-1” is not a motorcycle is not the original car is an electric scooter
Most people who know Toyota i-Road will think it is a very cool electric car, because i-Road is very small, is an ideal commuter tool. But like i-Road so that the size of the electric car with a motorcycle can be more than one. The C-1, developed by Lit Motors Inc, is a product that is not inferior to i-Road, and is expected to be available by the end of the year, compared to i-Road and C-1.
C-1 shape is very peculiar, although only the size of the motorcycle size, as well as a previous two rounds, but there is a car-style design: including double-door, seat belt, full cover cockpit configuration, the use of the car The steering wheel is even equipped with an airbag. The unique full package design makes the C-1 safe 70% higher than the traditional motorcycle.
In addition, the car’s biggest bright spot is: in order to ensure the stability of the body, in the chassis of the two electronic gyroscope can provide 1762N · m torque support, you can tighten the axis firmly in the bottom, even in the stationary state of the body It will not tilt. It is also the world’s first electric car with gyroscope stabilizer technology. The principle is like a child playing “turn gyroscope”: as long as the high-speed rotation, the gyro will not fall. And the C-1 is equipped with a high-speed sensor and processor, once the motorcycle is detected by the side impact, the processor will immediately respond to provide the thrust in the opposite direction to maintain the balance of the body. Therefore, compared to the general bike, electric cars, motorcycles, C-1 can effectively reduce the harm caused by traffic accidents.
In terms of power, C-1 equipped with a 27ps motor, although the power is not large, but because of the lightweight body so much better than the. It is worth noting that this car actually in 6s will be able to complete 0-100km / h acceleration, speed can even reach 160km / h. The car is also equipped with KERS kinetic energy recovery system, a charge can travel up to 320km, each charging time of 4-6h.
The car is priced at about $ 24,000 and 10,000 in the first installment. Now, consumers only need $250 can be scheduled one.
Finally, the appearance of the fashionable C-1 prototype car, in fact, its founder Kim and one of his friends pure hand work, from the beginning of the design to the final shape spent a total of only $750,000.
