the 4-door SIN CUV (crossover utility vehicle) is ‘limited’ to 160 km on a charge, enough to cross most cities twice. it incorporates four electric motors delivering 60 kW, and four independent seats with generous legroom and weighs in at just 950 kg (2,094 lbs).this includes a 20-kWh battery pack weighing 200 kg (440.9 lbs) made up of a 16 kWh battery fixed inside the electric vehicle, and a 6 kWh pack that can be removed.

its design is stripped back to maximize internal space, complimented by a large fascia window maximizing road view. it uses minimal components and lightweight materials – improving its range and minimizing battery consumption. the SIN weighs just 950 kg (2,094 lbs). this includes a 20-kWh battery pack weighing 200 kg (440.9 lbs) made up of a 16 kWh battery fixed inside the electric vehicle, and a 6 kWh pack that can be removed.

biomega adheres to the less-is-more approach of scandinavian design standards‘, the company explains.through the resulting uncluttered interior, the car rejects superfluous styling in favour of low cost, comfort and sustainability.

biomega says the SIN is easy to manoeuvre in tight urban spaces and can be adapted for a wide range of business models, including ride sharing or leasing. the company estimates it will bring the EV to market between 2021 and 2023, for a projected price of €20,000 (about $22,950).

  • There are some points here that i noticed, cameras for rear view mirrors, but where do you view their feeds (where are the screens for them)?, no cubby places (where would you keep your stuff)?, no doors (protection from elements, crash protection)?, those seats looks like they won’t be comfortable, seatbelt’s?, yes i know this is a urban vehicle and this more or less still a concept, but this design seems incompleted, hollowed.. and last bt not the least that price..

  • I admire original thinking, I would like to have one when available

  • I see no reason why they’d go for these exposed wheels other than style over substance… not something you’d associate with Scandinavian design. Making use of the space between the wheels would be maximizing interior space. They should’ve taken a page from the kei-car book if that was really so important, now it just sounds like hollow marketing speak.
