Innovative Mobility to Reveal Urban Electric Colibri in Geneva
German automaker Innovative Mobility will reveal its electric Colibri concept at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show.
The Colibri is classified as an urban micro commuter and Innovative Mobility says its appeal will be to inner-city commuters and to businesses seeking efficient transportation in urban environments.
The single-seat Colibri’s range is estimated at up to 68 miles. A 24-kW electric motor handles propulsion duties and is claimed to provide enough oomph to propel the 970-pound Colibri from 0 to 62 mph in 9.9 seconds and on to its top speed of 75 mph.
The lithium-iron phosphate battery pack of undisclosed capacity (rumors say 6.3-kWh) can be charged to 80 percent in 20 minutes.
Gullwing doors and a hybrid spaceframe chassis come standard.
Innovative Mobility says that its electric concept will evolve into a production Colibri in late 2014 with a target price of 7,900 € ($10,276 US) excluding the $64 monthly lease cost of the battery.
