A two-seat electric vehicle weighing only 65 kg is possible through a unique structure consisting of a sandwich plate with the 4 wheels and a cabin similar to a safety helmet. Instead of doors the whole cabin is lifted up and swings back. Energy consumption and battery size are reduced to a minimum. A mechanical joystickrdquo is used for steering, power control and braking.
