Zagreb firm DOK-ING will present its XD electric city car at the International Autosalon & Motor Show on 4 March in Geneva.
Engineers at DOK-ING, one of the international leaders in the design and manufacture of multi-purpose, robotic vehicles, have been working on that research and development project for the last four years and succeeded in single-handedly creating a new electric automobile.
The three-seat car has been designed primarily as an ecologically-acceptable vehicle for use in urban areas. It is 2.8 metres long, 1.7 metres wide and 1.6 metres high. The XD has been designed by Igor Juric.
Customers will have a choice between a cheaper lead battery and a new-generation battery made of lithium, iron and phosphate (LiFeP04) that is light, ecologically-acceptable and non-combustible.
Following two hours of charging, the car will be able to travel a distance of 250 kilometres. It will be equipped with a regenerative braking system enabling it to recharge during braking. It will have a five-year warranty.
An electric car’s advantages are less pollution and cheaper fuel as well as rather long use without a need for servicing.
The company added that such cars had other advantages, especially when it came to city driving: quiet operation, no exhaust and easier steering.
The maximum speed of 130 kilometres an hour speed can be adjusted according to customers' requirements.
