Design Concept of the Day: Belumbury Dany

November 15, 2011 § Leave a comment

Here’s a new name on the EV scene: Belumbury. This Rome-based design consultancy has teamed up with the Università di Camerino to develop a two-door, four-seat city car called Dany, which could be offered in electric or petrol-powered form. The Dany, on display at the Milan International Motorcycle Show this week, has a tubular steel frame with plastic body panels. A 10kW motor with lithium-ion battery pack gives up to 112 miles of range and a top speed just over 59mph; the two-cylinder petrol version (20bhp) features a CVT gearbox and does about 56mph. Why a motorbike show for its debut? It’s classed as a lightweight ‘quadricycle’ rather than being a proper car. Prettier than a G-Wiz, though, and perhaps a bit of Italian city chic will bring some smarter design to this sector. (Via Autoblog Green).
