E-bike maker Biomega has revealed a four-wheel electric car known as the Sin, according to New Atlas.
The simplistic design allows four individuals to sit inside, and travel at a top speed of 80 mph. Sin is named after the city of Singapore.
“Biomega has always been about creating a paradigm shift in the way society imagines transportation,” said Jens Martin Skibsted, Biomega’s founder, according to New Atlas. “We feel that we are in an extremely strong position to design an EV that represents the frontier of the new mobility. We are working on a new spectrum of vehicles where, for now, the EV is the largest and the bicycle is the most compact; making Sin another step in the natural progression of our ongoing battle against the combustion car.”
The sports vehicle offers an affordable and balanced answer to urban transportation, with a body shell that weighs approximately 2,000 lb made from lightweight composites and aluminum crossbeams. The transparent roof, windshield, and driver and passenger doors make for an all-visible view when driving.
The Sin’s 20 kWh battery modules are based in the floor of the vehicle, and the 6 kWh worth of modular battery units can be removed and replaced in the rear.
The wheels have a 15 kW in-hub motor for 160 Nm of torque, which allows drivers to go from zero to 62 mph in 13 seconds.
Biomega hopes to have the Sin in production between 2021 and 2023, at a price of about $23,000.
