lumeneo smera

image: autoblog

the lumeneo smera is a two seat electric car that has all the perks of your standard sedan in an ultra- compact package. the car concept was recently shown at the 2010 geneva motor show and was also featured in designboom’s article on electric motorcycles and scooters. while many automakers were showing off electric versions of their standard lineup, the lumeneo smera rethinks the car from the ground up. the car weighs just under 1,000 pounds and packs a 15-kilowatt electric engine under the hood. when the smera turns corners it leans right into them, twisting on its chassis.

  • Looks like a badly Photoshopped Smart car!

    LMFAO says:
  • yeah too much resemblance to smart car. but otherwise looks pretty nice

    zuma says:
  • Who thinks these things look good? Why does an electric car have to look like a disability aid?

    Stevo says:
  • Valiant effort, but the seating will torture you. Worse, it needs its own bike-size lane — incompatible with existing traffic otherwise.

    Tom P says:
  • Lmfao & zuma don’t you think every car pretty much looks like other cars think before you comment next time and come up with more useful and original observations

  • moderndesign 2120: “every car pretty much looks like other cars”

    Sorry but that’s simply not true!!! Any person with the gift of sight will tell you so. What is true is that this car looks very similar to [url=http://www.tcnj.edu/~pa/news/2009/images/bluesmartcarJPG.jpg] this [/url].

  • This is what you get when you ask a golfer to design a wheelchair. Id rather have a motorcycle, Smart or full sized hybrid, even an electric bicycle because in those things i could figure out where to put myself plus groceries and not feel a pinch of claustrophobia which is already giving me the jitters just looking at this one.

    charles says:
  • ugly as hell

    donmatteo says:
  • Like to see that cope with the Elk-Test.

    Jim says:
  • The vehicle is designed for a specific environment. Probably not going to run into any Elk in congested European cities. The car is cute, functional, and revolutionary in its ability to tilt during turns. My only complaint is why do these environmentally friendly cars have to cost so much? The car is less than half the size of a normal sedan but more expensive. It seems to me that if you want to promote a car to the massess, you had better make it affordable to the masses. Great start though.
