Lumeneo Neoma and Smera

According to French media, Lumeneo, a small French manufacturer of electric vehicles established in 2006, is now in liquidation.

Struggling with low sales, Lumeneo missed its target of 500 units in 2013 by... almost 500. Production since mid-2012 did not even exceed 10 units (including three Neoma).

Lumeneo was selling two models - the Smera a two-seater (in tandem) and Neoma four-seat city car presented at the 2012 Paris Motor Show. Bosch Car Service was contracted to service these vehicles.

Neoma starts from €21,700 ($29,273 US or €14,700 after a €7,000 incentive) and this excludes the battery pack, which must be rented.

This is a sad time for Lumeneo, but on the other hand even smart only 248 EVs in the past 10 months in France, so there is no easy way to sell hundreds of small EVs at Lumeneo's current price points.
