Pininfarina B0 (B Zero) Electric Car At The Paris Auto Show

B0 (B Zero) Electric Car

One of the surprise so far from the Paris Auto is the unfortunately named Pininfarina B0 B Zero) electric car. The car is to the memory of CEO Andrea Pininfarina, who died in an auto accident. The B which is a full scale car, not just a concept, is a four-door electric hatchback in partnership with the French Bolloré.

The first B Zeros (I can t myself to call such a looking car the B0 ) should start off the line in late 2009. always does nice but this B0 is particularly impressive. It not looks nice, it has a really designed inner structure; for the lithium polymer LMP batteries be located under the vehcile, the axles to give the B0 a more center of gravity.

The batteries in cars are often one of the heaviest of the car. Pics after the

The B0: the for a cleaner world

Bolloré and have entered into a featuring all the expertise required to serial production of an electric car thanks to its technical characteristics and its styling, is bound to make in motoring circles.

This car not be a prototype. It will be a mass model, with the first coming off the production line at the end of after which production be ramped up gradually based on the of the batteries. Built in Turin by a joint venture formed by the two groups, the B0 electric car will be by Bolloré’s proprietary LMP technology, a combination of batteries and supercapacitors in Bolloré’s plants in Quimper, and Montreal, Canada.

The B0 will be a fully-electric vehicle any carbon dioxide production, been designed from the up with that aim in mind. Its will be housed in a compartment designed for that purpose and under the car, between its lowering its centre of gravity and it with outstanding road-holding

With its superb body by Pininfarina, Italy’s renowned design shop, the B0 electric car be an elegant four-seater, four-door with an automatic gearbox. Its LMP which will be rechargeable in a of hours from a standard main socket, will it with a range of 250 km (153 The B0 will have a top speed is electronically limited to 130 km/h (80 and will feature potent reaching 60 km/h from a start (0 to 37 mph) in 6.3 seconds.

The B0 also feature solar on its roof and hood, so as to help its electrical power reserves.

LMP: revolutionary battery

Bollore Bluecar Electric Cars

At the heart of any electric car, the battery. Bolloré is a highly group of companies with a yearly turnover of 10 billion US and 35,000 employees. For the past 30 the group has been the world’s producer of components for capacitors. to its acquired know-how in extruded and the storage of electrical energy, has been working for 15 years its subsidiary, Batscap, to develop a lithium polymer battery.

battery is able to store, and it can be recharged in just a few hours. The does not require any maintenance and has a of around 200,000 km (125,000 Another key benefit is its unmatched while in operation. Added to the B0 electric car does not emit any gases, nor any fine particles. The LMP batteries thus help air pollution.

The batteries of the B0 also to reducing noise, another which affects people’s of life in urban environments.

boosting acceleration and recycling

Supercapacitors are sophisticated energy components developed by the Bolloré In an electric car, supercapacitors and store energy generated the car is braking and feed it back the system when the car moves off The result is greater acceleration, range and a longer lifespan for the battery. The electric cars by BatScap’s LMP batteries and supercapacitors a range of over 250 km.

They are (with a top speed of 130 km/h), to drive, safe, and long-lasting.

energy from solar

Because it is 100% electric the B0 does not generate any pollution. But the of generating the electricity which the car must also, as far as possible, not produced any atmospheric pollution. is why the creators of the B0 have designed it to every possible solution to optimise the car’s energy and use of clean energy sources. For the B0 electric car is fitted with which enable it to store and the energy that is generated braking.

Similarly, the car’s and part of its hood are covered highperformance solar panels help power some of its It goes without saying a responsible environmental approach be coherent throughout. Which is why all the used to build the car’s battery and interior trim been carefully selected for low environmental impact. All are recyclable or

The Bolloré Group is also in the of developing straight-forward panels of cells which might be by individuals or in public places to or partly recharge the B0 electric batteries using solar

The combined power of two major groups

Ergué-Gabéric / Bolloré

LMP and supercapacitors were developed at the centre of the Bolloré Group’s site at Ergué- Gabéric Quimper in Brittany, France. were the outcome of a concerted effort founded on the Group’s activities, Bolloré being the leading producer of ultra-thin films used in the production of another energy storage The success of its research programme led the Group to form BatScap, a dedicated to these activities, 15 years ago.

Nowadays, employees have access to the advanced laboratory and production and comprise more than 120 research staff and technicians.

/ Bolloré

In 2007, the Bolloré bought the assets of Avestor, the other company in the world possessed the technology and the patents to manufacture LMP batteries. Avestor’s team, which numbers sixty highly qualified thus joined BatScap. By the talent, technologies and facilities of sites, the Bolloré Group is to wield major and highly production facilities which are to cater to the production lines of the B0 and Microbus vehicles.

Cambiano / Pininfarina

World-renowned for the of its design teams which created many of the world’s beautiful cars over the Pininfarina is also a highly carmaker which produces vehicles on contract for many The B0 electric car will be produced by the joint venture at a plant near Turin. The joint will benefit from the know-how and experience of Pininfarina’s who are proud to be involved in producing the first serial production car powered by LMP batteries and supercapacitors the company’s own badge.
