Geneva Motor Show: Edag Light Car Concept

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 29, 2009

EDAG, the engineering company and concept car creator, has officially unwrapped their most recent new Light Car concept at this week's Geneva Motor Show. The Light Car concept, which is a technological piece for an ecologically safe future, comes with high-tech lightweight materials and an electric powertrain.

The main feature of the car is the utilization of lightweight basaltic fiber which is provided by ASA.TEC. The fiber is 100% recyclable and much less expensive than carbon fiber and aluminum.

The car is powered by an electric drive system that is located in the wheels and linked to a lithium-ion battery pack that assists the car to reach a range of 150km (93 mi).

The system's compact footprint allows it to be accommodated into small cars like the EDAG Light Car concept.

Other groundbreaking features in the Light Car concept consist of a bespoke interior that adapts to the driver's unique requirements, including the climate control system which can be located according to the whim and fancy of the driver.

There are lots of LED lighting spread in the car including a tailgate that can double as a message relay system to vehicles following behind.
