New light-weight electric car can be parked on a wall

Friday 19th July, 2019

The Nobe 100 is a new lightweight electric car currently offered for $29,000 and it can be parked vertically on a wall to save space.

Nobe is an Estonia-based company trying to bring to market an electric car with a few distinctive features which is extremely light.

The company says that it starts at 600 kg (1,323 lbs). The lightweight design results in a decent 210 km (130 miles) range on just a 21 kWh battery pack.

A version with a 25 kWh battery pack and 260 km (162 mile) range is also offered.

The longer-range version is also equipped with in-wheel motors in each wheel for a total max power of 72 kW versus 54 kW for the base version.

Another clearly distinctive feature is the retro-looking design reminiscent of some three-wheelers found in Europe in the 1970s.

Nobe is also claiming that it will be the first electric car that will be easily upgradable with both software and hardware.

Nobe is trying to bring the vehicle to market in 2021 and is selling the first 10 units for $29,000 through Indiegogo.
