A new japanese company, called Rimono, has presented a curious electric vehicle urban of the same name. The Rimono has been designed by Kota Nezu, the same that gave life to the Toyota Setsuna wood. The Rimono does not use conventional materials in your body 2.2 metres in length. The skin of this car, and never better said it is waterproof, with a textile material created on the basis of a mixture of cotton and polyester.
Given its characteristics, the Rimono is a car that is eminently urban, a competitor of the microcar and the Renault Twizy 45, as in Spain could be driving with the driving of A1 motorcycles up to 125 cm3. Has a electric motor 6.8 HP that is powered by a lithium-ion battery of 4 kWh. Not exceed 45 kilometers per hour of maximum speed, his autonomy is 50 km.
In its interior the Rimono is more like a moped than a car. There is No steering wheel and in its place we find a handlebar that includes the controls of the lights, stuttering and horn, as well as the speedometer and an additional clock which displays some data of the driving, as the remaining range. The brake itself is of pedal. Has the capacity to three occupants, one in front and two behind, and the driver’s seat has an interesting solution, to be rotatable, and to facilitate the entrance and exit to the vehicle.
The interior is completely minimalist and not even have sound equipment. Instead, there are two portable speakers that can connect to a tablet or smartphone to reproduce the audio stored on these external devices. The idea of Kota Nezu is to be able to start the marketing Rimono in 2017.
