Pininfarina Unveil Electric Car

Pininfarina unveiled new prototype electric car today, the Nido EV the car is designed to be a modular bed for future electric vehicles. The EV was designed at Pininfarina s Style and Centre in Cambiano, Turin and is designed to be a highly modular that can be re-jigged from a 2 city car, to a 2+2 hatchback, a light van and everything else in

The Nido EV features a 30Kw motor, a 21kWh battery giving the car about a 87 mile kilometer) range on a full The little blue car can manage in 6.7 seconds (actually pretty the vehicle genre). With similarities to the Smart Car and the Mitsubishi the Nido EV is clearly targeting the range city mobility

This would probably be a car for someone who either lives in a city or within 50 miles of long range driving t be an option but cars like the EV would probably cover the majority of most peoples day to day needs.

Official Pininfarina Nido EV Release

SYNOPSIS: steel frame esigned to to four different, completely or hybrid vehicles: 2-seater, pickup and light van.

To the celebrations of its 80th anniversary, unveils the Nido EV, the first prototype of the “Nido Development the project for an electric car conceived, and built entirely by the Pininfarina and Engineering Centre of Cambiano The Nido EV bears witness to the and experience that Pininfarina has up in the development of electric vehicles, particular attention to the Segment A cars that will the streets of the future to make our more pleasant to live in.

The EV is one outcome of the pioneering, far-sighted taken by Pininfarina three ago, to focus on sustainable approaching it from various not only the adoption of a hybrid or driveline, but also research on reducing consumption and “wheel to emissions, the use of alternative materials are lighter and recyclable, active and safety, and IT, which will to combine the sustainable use of means of with intelligent traffic

The exterior design of the Nido EV up and updates the lines and volumes won the Nido of 2004 the award for the Beautiful Car in the World in the Prototypes and cars category, the Compasso 2008 and a place in the temple of art, the MoMA of New York. On the hand, the interiors of this Nido EV project are still of a technical prototype, with no at stylistic research.

The Nido EV is a laboratory designed both to the electrification of a small city car and to a modular floorpan. The body of this first prototype is a steel frame, while the version will have an space frame. The structure was to adapt to four different, electric or hybrid vehicles: 2+2, pickup and light

The Nido EV, a small city car larger than a Smart), has 2 and a permanent magneto rear The “Nido Development Programme” envisages the development of two more, larger versions: the first be a hybrid with an endothermic positioned at the front and an electrical at the rear; the second will be with a front engine. In cases, the position of the engine it possible to increase roominess to 4, and to improve weight distribution.

The Nido EV prototype is powered by a Z5 Ni-NaCl battery, which very high levels of and reliability. When fully it has a range of 140 km and a top speed of 120 km/h electronically), and accelerates 0-60 in 6.7 seconds. The environmental compatibility of the Z5 battery is enhanced by the total of harmful or polluting chemical and the fact that it is 100% at the end of its life, in fact the batteries are in the foundry and used to produce steel.

The prototype is also with “green” tyres, by Pirelli paying particular to safety, environmental sustainability and

Where climate control is the “Nido Development Programme” use an AC electrical compressor and a high electric heater making it to implement automatic control which will help to consumption in most conditions. The will also cover into solutions and light-weight with a high mechanical/electrical and energy saving solutions with outstanding charging and braking systems specifically for applications.

Pininfarina aims to the benchmark in Italy, and further for sustainable mobility, just as it has a global benchmark for style for the 80 years, always investing in and development programmes to tackle as they emerge in the motor rapidly and methodically.

During the crisis of the 1970s, for example, the concentrated on aerodynamics and alternative of energy to reduce petrol Pininfarina replied by developing the CNR 1 prototype, with ideal bodywork. Those years produced the Ecos, the first car developed by Pininfarina, underlining it was on the cutting edge in an area the motor industry had only to reassess recently. In the 1980s, research into the application of materials resulted in the Audi and Lancia Hit prototypes, which the use of new and lighter metallic and compound The 1990s brought greater of environmental problems, more in the field of recyclable materials and and a more efficient concept of how to the vehicle.

Pininfarina offered new solutions the Ethos macro-project, a family of 3 with an aluminium chassis, resin bodywork and an innovative engine with reduced building up to the Ethos 3EV in 1995, zero emissions car. recently, Pininfarina has focused its on hybrid vehicles, with the Eta and Metrocubo projects, two small with modular cabins also tackle the problems of in town and on medium hauls. in 2004, Pininfarina returned to the of safety, which it had touched on the Sigma, Alfa Romeo P33 and Grand Prix prototypes, and in it proposed the Sintesi, a futuristic car powered by 4 fuel cells per wheel).

Today, with the new crisis and the need to curb and consumption, the opportunities offered by emissions urban mobility grown significantly: the world is aware of the environment, and Pininfarina was the industrial company in Italy, and one of the in Europe, to propose a project for a electric car, the BlueCar, jointly with the Bolloré Today, when all the large view the electric car as an opportunity, takes another step promoting a new philosophy that the choice of individual and collective transport in the context of a new lifestyle everyone should adopt in to increase energy saving, and the planet. This is why sustainable has become one of the pillars underpinning the activities.

And it is also why the new Nido EV project is now launched, in parallel with the
