Smer, the French urban two-seater

The obstinacy of brothers Daniel and Thierry Moulene two engineers french Lumeneo founders of the company, is about to bear dividends, since they are preparing to commercialize the first city car driven entirely on electricity, the Smer.

The Smer is the culmination of five years of research that had begun in 2003. Two years later, they already had their first concept vehicle, the Moulene and voila today they present, not a vehicle concept, but a very close prototype of what will be the vehicle of series, the Smer.

 Chassis all-aluminum spaceframe type integrated cage protection for passengers, ultra rigid and safer. It is very important to the technical data for a small vehicle with an overall length of only 2450 mm, a width of only 800 mm and weight of 350 pounds. Given its width rather shortened the Smer tilts slightly curves, reminding us similar effects previously recorded by the legendary Citroen 2CV. Fortunately, the latter has four wheels and tires that are specific, dimensions of 245/70R14.

It presents a very original silhouette with strong sloping lines have been very advanced aerodynamics studies. It is extremely important to specify that this car has nothing on the contrary, a person dressed motorcycle ...

This Lilliputian can accommodate up to two passengers sitting in tandem, one behind the other, a picture of a motorcycle and any resemblance fades. Despite its reduced size, found at the back a small section of loading. Its very long windshield tilts provides qualified panoramic vision.

The Smer is powered by two small electric motors, brushless permanent magnet was associated with lithium-ion. LA provided power is 40 hp delivering a maximum speed of 130 km / h. It only takes 8 seconds to reach 100 km / h and its autonomy is 150 km. Can recharge the batteries through a household outlet and it only takes one night to enjoy a full recharge.

Unless unforeseen is the next World Auto Paris in September we will be entitled to official launch of the micro Smer, for marketing the following month. It would be more surprising that this car very original, but more than ever of his time, is commercialized in North American soil. Moreover, the Smer could be offered at a very dirty price that would establish beyond the 20,000 euro ($ 30,000 Cdn).
