Minimalism taken to the maximum for a new low-cost EV, which takes Scandinavian design to new places.
Danish bike maker Biomega has revealed the Sin, a new stripped-back electric vehicle that also happens to be its first four-wheeled product.
Biomega has taken Scandinavian minimalism to new levels with its first automotive design, arguing it deliberately rejected "superfluous styling in favour of low cost, comfort and sustainability".
Ahead of the driver there's an aluminium crossbeam holding up the steering wheel, and a large infotainment tablet, but not a heap else. There's also a huge front window claimed to maximise the view of the road ahead, with a wide field of view.
The Sin has exposed wheels, each featuring an in-hub motor, which together generate a combined 60kW of power and 160Nm of torque.
Thanks to its carbon-fibre-reinforced plastic (CFRP) body shell, the Sin is projected to have a kerb weight of around 950kg. The company says the car will be able to complete the 0-100km/h standard in roughly 13 seconds, and hit a top speed of 130km/h.
The car's main 14kWh battery pack is housed under its flat floor. A swappable set of secondary batteries with an additional 6kWh of capacity are said to relieve range anxiety.
The bike maker plans on launching the Sin some time between 2021 and 2023 for around €20,000 ($32,350).
According to AutoGuide, Biomega is partnering with British and German firms to use new manufacturing processes to bring the car to life and hit its ambitious cost target, and has also secured funding from a Hong Kong-based investment group for the project.
