In Geneva will show a hybrid concept of local productionSwiss company Mindset will present a hybrid concept MIT E-Motion at the Geneva motor show, which opens on March 2, according to the magazine "Auto Motor und Sport.The car's appearance was founded by a former Volkswagen designer Murat Gunak (Murat Guenak). Key features of the exterior are opening up the side of the door, a long bonnet and sharply going up the windshield. Despite the futuristic appearance of the MIT E-Motion design has brought a piece of history in the form of headlights that resemble the head optics sports cars 1950-60-ies.The basis of the concept - space aluminum frame, to which are attached the plastic body panels. This design allowed us to achieve a low weight of 4.2-metre vehicle - 800 pounds, and install a hybrid powerplant smaller than modern serial "hybrids". It consists of a compact electric motor, internal combustion engine and a lithium-ion battery. Without charging the car can travel up to 100 kilometers.When the battery runs out, the concept is driven by a small gasoline engine with a capacity of only 24 horsepower. Mindset MIT E-Motion is also equipped with a solar panel mounted on the roof, which provides additional energy to charge and power the electric motor.The developers hope that the car will go into serial production in early 2009. Annually Mindset plans to sell 10 thousand of these machines for the price of 50 thousand euros apiece.auto.lenta.ru15.02.2008.
