e'mo is a lightweight electric car for town and local traffic, of a totally new design. Consistent with the motto of "less is more" e'mo renounces all superfluous unnecessary burdens and places in pole position the original purpose of the automobile, that is individual mobility.

2009 e'mo.

The name itself stands equally for electric motion, efficient mobility and for emotion. Thus the central concerns for e'mo are optimal energy efficiency with high suitability for everyday use, an attractive and distinctive package, and all this at an affordable price.

"Taking a new direction while leaving no trace behind".
e'mo began with a vision: to create a contemporary form of individual mobility for local traffic. A small light vehicle, environmentally friendly and highly energy-efficient while making no compromises as regards utility and safety, to be cool and sexy, practical and manoeuvrable and above all affordable to every man and woman. A car in fact that today's market has not yet seen.

Less is more".
Today's motor vehicles are big and heavy and hence have low fuel efficiency. Even most of the electric vehicles the motor industry is presently planning or has already announced are very heavy, because they are fundamentally based on existing designs using the internal combustion engine, and/or give pride of place to high power instead of high energy-efficiency. Such designs are far from realising the potential of electric vehicles for saving energy. e'mo is a new concept from the ground up, aiming at the target of energy-efficient lightweight construction. Lightweight materials and a thoughtful design that renounces all unnecessary components lead to a uniquely low weight. Furthermore, simple construction with few parts, the use of standard components and uncomplicated technology make for low production costs.

"Come and go - with e'mo it's the most natural thing in the world"
e'mo is the perfect companion for daily travel over short distances. Whether on the way to work, doing the shopping or for a short trip to the countryside, e'mo makes it fun to drive in and around town. As a 2+1-seater e'mo has room enough for most everyday needs. Small and nippy, an efficient money-saver but chic and stylish as well, e'mo is an attractive alternative to the existing range of motor or electric vehicles. Moreover, e'mo is ideal for transport within a closed perimeter, such as the site of a private firm or an airport.

Moreover, e'mo is ideal for transport within a closed perimeter, such as the site of a private firm or an airport.

"To your destination with ease".
e'mo is laid out as a three-seat cabriolet. If the third seat isn't in use, the rear seat-back folds down electrically and is closed with a fabric cover. The all-weather fabric top is simply stretched above the seats, and the entry openings are closed when necessary with a textile spray-cover. The cockpit is of high quality and fully equipped, with the seats ergonomically designed for optimum comfort. Of course there's a socket for your iPod: e'mo doesn't mean austerity but fun with modern and environmentally friendly mobility!

Crash-test dummies might drive an e'mo.
Although e'mo is small and light, it makes no compromises when it comes to safety. The following ensure passenger safety:
• Extremely stiff bodywork
• Crash-resistant front end
• Two roll-bars
• 3-point front seat belts
• Safety seats
• Padded dashboard

Crash testing has already demonstrated that despite its low weight e'mo offers a high degree of passive safety. The exceptionally stable passenger box made up of sandwich elements ensures the integrity of the survival space. The roll-bars prevent the soft top from collapsing in the event of a roll.

"A featherweight champ in a tailor-made suit".
Not only is e'mo environmentally friendly and low-cost, it also brings a bit of style to everyday living. With its distinctive lines it sets an example of forward-looking conceptual design. At the wheel of the e'mo the driver not only displays his concern for the environment, but also his or her sense of style. Being ecologically concerned doesn't have to be boring: it can be fun too, and enrich your lifestyle. With e'mo you take your place as a social leader and declare your belief in environmental protection with a touch of panache.
