February 26, 2010 § Leave a comment
French coach-building firm Heuliez – supplier of electric folding roof systems and seating modules, as well as maker of special-build vehicles – is to show a tiny Microbus concept in Geneva, reports Auto Motor Und Sport.
The electric Microbus is developed to come with 6kW, 12kW or 18kW battery packs, and is just 2.91m long. It’s a three-seater with sliding side doors, giving one seat up front for the driver and two to the rear; Heuliez points out that access to the seats is easy even in the tightest parking spaces.
Designed under the leadership of former Volkswagen design chief Murak Gunak, the Microbus could go into production in the autumn, suggests the German magazine.
