Danish bicycle brand Biomega’s first ever electric vehicle concept features an uncluttered form that adheres to Scandinavian design principles. Debuted at the Shanghai CIEE trade fair, the SIN electric car is designed with the city dweller in mind, as a connected, affordable and sustainable mode of urban transport. Like each of the Biomega bikes, the car’s name is an abbreviation of the city that inspired it, in this case, Singapore. SIN incorporates four independent engines, four doors and four seats. Inside, its design has been reduced as far as possible in accordance with the less-is-more principles of Scandinavian design.
An aluminium crossbeam holds up the steering wheel, and a large “info-tainment” tablet. Its minimal components and lightweight materials, such as modular carbon fibre, allow for ample legroom while reducing its overall weight and battery consumption. The company said that the car will be able to complete the 0-100 kilometres per hour standard in roughly 13 seconds, and can hit a top speed of 130 kilometres per hour. The design’s new open-wheel vehicle typology allows for a flat floor and easy manoeuvring in tight urban spaces. The car’s main 14kWh battery pack is housed under its floor and its wide fascia window is intended to maximise the road view.
