The Freeranger

constructionDrawing inspiration from several sources, most notably german Loremo whose principle is reducing weight and airdrag, as well as many others like VW 1L, Wrightspeed X1, Aptera, Formula 1, Tesla Roadster and solar and eco racers, the Freeranger brings it all together in a way never seen before. The sleek composite monocoque body seats 2 in tandem (one after the other) for minimum weight and aerodynamic drag and the outboard disc wheels on a single beam achieves the same ultra low weight and drag while maintaining a wide stable stance and good road grip. The result is so low weight and good aerodynamics that it reaches unheard of energy efficiency for a practical car. A car only really uses energy for pushing the wind and rolling its weight and eliminating those eliminates the energy consumption. Simple. That's why it's easy to push a bicycle and hard to push a 1.4 ton car.

  • Pure electric drive
  • 2 seats
  • 120kg curb weight (no driver)
  • Glass fiber composite monocoque body
  • Fiber reinforced plastic wheels
  • Rear wheel drive. Independent suspension
  • Dual 40HP electric motors in fixed 1:4.6 chain gearing (no gearbox or differential)
  • Range: 100km (200km with 20kg additional pack)
  • Acceleration: 0-100km/h in est. 4.5 seconds (quicker than a Porsche 911)
  • Top speed: 150km/h (rev limited)
  • Efficiency: 30 WattHours/km est. (2008 VW Golf 1.6: 617 Wh/km, 2004 GMC Yukon: 1390Wh/km)
  • High discharge rate lithium battery
  • Rear cargo space (for groceries or set of golf clubs)
  • High intensity LED nose bar headlight. LED rear and blinker indicators flush in the body
  • Unobstructed jet fighter like panoramic view
  • Single wing door

This is not a family car and a car doesn't have to be for every use just as a bicycle isn't a family car but people still use it to go to work. Is this not a more attractive vehicle when you have to go 50km CO2-free to work in cold and rain than a bicycle. Something like 90% of car person transport is done with only 1 person per car. Is it not better to have different vehicles for different use so everyone in the world doesn't drive a 5 seater car when they only need 1 or 2. Families often have more than one car anyway and this type of vehicle can be made at low cost so you can afford more than one. Think about it.

It's a concept to illustrate just how efficient practical transport can be and is not for sale, at least not yet.
