2010 Paris Motor Show Preview: Lumeneo Neoma EV Concept

Article by Christian Andrei, on September 13, 2010

Electric car maker Lumeneo isn’t famous outside of France but it is hoping to change that by unveiling a new, larger concept of its Smera city car at the upcoming Paris Motor Show. Earlier this year, the Smera had debuted in production form at the Geneva show.

The Smera is a tandem two-seater that like Nissan's Land Glider concept, leans into curves and is powered by a battery that gives it a 90-mile range.

This vehicle is equipped with a 10 kWh battery pack and a 42hp/30 kW electric motor that allows for a top speed of 80 mph and an 8-second acceleration time to hit 60 mph from a standstill.

Lumeneo’s vehicle will start selling in Paris later this year before it arrives at other major European cities.

The company believes that it will appeal to many Europeans due to its small carbon footprint. Pricing has been set at about 29,500 euro, without taking into account the government incentives.

Neoma concept can be accurately described to be a widened Smera. More space is provided to seat up to four passengers but Lumeneo kept the Smera's 98-inch length and 59-inch height.

With a 63-inch width, the Neoma can’t be considered a large car but since its battery is fitted under the front seats, there’s enough space inside for four passengers as long as they don't bring any cargo. 

As the Neoma appears to be a double-wide Smera, their technical specifications are expected to be similar however, there has been no official announcement. Pricing has yet to be revealed too.
