Living in big cities, efficient mobility is important, so it is natural that electric vehicles are often chosen, especially electric motorbikes. This time, lovers of environmentally friendly vehicles will have a choice of new electric vehicles that are claimed to be fun to drive in big cities.
People in big cities are considered to have started to switch and leave conventional vehicles, and prefer to use electric vehicles. Even e-bikes and electric scooters are often an option.
Now this time a startup company from California, Nimbus, introduced a new electric vehicle called Nimbus One. The Nimbus is an electric vehicle that operates like an electric scooter, but has the best security system like a car.
When viewed from the appearance, the Nimbus One has a unique appearance by having a width of 2.75 feet and a length of 7.5 feet (2 meters), so this vehicle is considered to be more comfortable to drive on narrow streets. When operating the Nimbus One can tilt like a motorbike or scooter.
The Nimbus may seem to have only one passenger, however the Nimbus One has space behind the driver’s seat for other passengers or storage for items such as groceries, and the back is explained to also be able to be converted to a baby seat.
“Scooters are fun, but also dangerous but sleek, so that’s fun. Our vehicle does the same thing, but requires skill from it,” said Nimbus chief Nong.
Currently the Nimbus One is still in prototype form as well as in testing. But Nong said it didn’t take a difficult process to get the Nimbus ready for sale to the general public.
“We don’t have to go through a rigorous, inexpensive and not long process to get our vehicle certified. Furthermore, drivers don’t need a driver’s license to drive, so anyone with a driver’s license can use our vehicle, without having to wear a helmet,” Nong added.
Explained the Nimbus is made for driving in the city, not on the highway, the Nimbus has a top speed of 50 miles per hour (80 km / h). With a 9 kWh battery the Nimbus One has a range of 93 miles (149 km) and a charging time of just 1.2 hours on a Level 2 charger or 5.4 hours when charging at home.
Indeed, at this time the Nimbus One is not certain when it will be introduced and what the selling price is offered, however this electric vehicle is claimed to be the right choice for urban communities.
