Lots of motor vehicles try to appeal to customers with their flexibility, but new German automaker Electric Brands is considerably raising the bar.
The firm’s eBussy is a small, modular electric vehicle that can be reassembled into pick-up trucks, capers and vans of no fewer than ten different shapes and sizes. What’s more, the steering column can be slid back and forth for both right- and left-hand-side driving.
The company aims to commence serial production of 30,000 vehicles in Germany in Q3 of 2021. It says that it already has 80 retailers in the country on board.
The standard model has a 10 kilowatt-hour battery with a maximum range of 200 kilometers, but an upgrade gets drivers a 30 kWh battery and 600km range. The tiny power source is made possible by the vehicle’s low weight of only 450 to 600 kilograms.
While it may not be fast or wide-ranging, the eBussy promises to be affordable. Electric Brands says the basic model will start at EUR 15,800 with the most expensive “Offroad Camper” version clocking in at €28,800.
