Lightweight Vehicle Modular e-vehicle that can be transformed into various body variants
Light, modular and fully electrified - this is the eBussy concept of the German company ElectricBrands, scheduled to launch in 2021.
eBussy is the name of the new concept recently introduced by the German mobility company Electric Brands. The vehicle, which is reminiscent of an old Bulli, is 100% electrically powered and can be configured with different bodies through a modular system.
Electric Brands has been working on electric mobility concepts and products since 2017. Initially, the company mainly developed electric scooters, which are now in series production. The concept of a vehicle that is versatile and modular then developed to meet the needs of the users. The result is an all-electric bus, which is built according to the "Lego principle" and is adaptable for a wide range of different usage requirements.
Designed as a modular system, the eBussy is available in two chassis variants. With a few hand movements and a little bit of strength, the eBussy can be converted from a business vehicle to a leisure vehicle in a matter of minutes. All that is needed is to exchange the corresponding modules. The customer can, for example, convert the vehicle from a bus to a delivery van, or mobile home.
A light vehicle with power
The standard battery pack provides 10 kWh in the eBussy and covers a range of up to 200 km. A more powerful 30 kWh version is optionally available, allowing a range of around 600 km. The batteries get recharged by integrated solar cells and the recuperating engines. Batteries in the eBussy are interchangeable, but can also recharge at standard household sockets or public quick-charge stations.
As a light vehicle, the eBussy will weigh between 450 and 600 kg, depending on the equipment and module, but will still have a maximum payload of 1000 kg. The vehicles will be powered by four in-wheel electric motors, which run in permanent four-wheel drive and deliver around 1000 Nm of torque.
