2 wheels are enough!
This concept provides the performance of a premium-class sportscar, combined, with the compactness of of the smallest cars, and an unbelievable low energy-consumption.
Production-costs would be within the range of any other compact car.
The concept of the body-shell shows the following unconventionel features:
Two weels only, covered by the bodyshell, passengers located behind each other, are excellent conditions for a slim shape and a low air-drag coifficient.
The estimated cw is about 0,1
The sectional-area one third of an average car only
2; The Bodyshell-Structure,
consists of an inner and an outer shell of 1mm thick pressed aluminium panels.
The 30mm space between the shells is filled with styrofoam.
This kind of monocoque-structure is extremly light and stiff.
Propulsion ( electric hybrid, all wheel-drive)
Two electric engines are integrated in each of the wheels . Thanks to the excellent torque-curve, and smooth charakteristics of the electric-engine, no clutch and no transmission is required.
A small and light gas-engine charges the thus small battery and /or directly supplies the electric engine with current.
While braking the engines work as a dynamo ,and recharge the battery.
4; stabilizing on 2 wheels
at higher speeds the “elektro-Blitz” will be stable, as any motorcycle on two wheels.
The short wings help to stabilize the airstream.
While parking, the car tipps on one of the two supporting-wheels, with the sliding-roof moved back, thus comfortable access for the passengers is guaranteed from the lowered side.
While standing in heavy traffic, a gyro-stabilizer prevents the “elektro-Blitz” from tipping over.
2- electric engines integrated in the weels.
Engine no. 1 47 kw
Engine no. 2: 25 kw
Battery charged by an
Emission-controlled supercharged V2-cylinder 4 stroke-engine,
750 ccm, 38 HP / 4900 rpm
Dimensions: l x w x h = 3500mm x 1600mm x 1200 mm
Weight: 360 kg
Air-resistance: 0,10 cw
Top speed: 320 km/h ( engine power required at this speed 36 kw only)
Energy-consumption: 3,5 6 kwh / 100 km, or 0,71,2 litres /100 km,, depending on speed and conditions
while braking the engines function as a dynamo for charging the battery .
The car also has electro-magnetic suspension. By adjusting the current, ground-clearance becomes variable.
