ECOmove QBeak Convertible and Coupe Get Videoed

What's green, orange, and ugly all over?

ECOmove QBeak Convertible and Coupe Get Videoed
 
 

I really like cars if you guys haven't gathered that by now. I think that small city cars and EVs have a place for some users. The thing I generally wonder about these little cars is if there is some sort of unwritten rule in the car design world that EVs and small cars have to be ugly? Seriously, the QBeak reminds me of the uglier relative of the Smart.

My gripes about the looks of the car aside, the thing first started out as a convertible and now a coupe version has been spied on video. The car does look better as a coupe if you ask me than a vert. These are among the first videos of the car actually moving. The QBeak is billed as using the world's most flexible electric car platform. The car puts the electric motors inside each wheel along with the brakes and the "ground breaking" composite suspension. That means that the car has more room inside for people and cargo. The maker says that the car will hold more than two people.

The battery capacity for the car can provide a wide variety of driving ranges from 30km to 300km. The car has no combustion engine and is a pure EV. The company says that the light weight of the QBeak is one of the reasons it can drive so far. It falls into the city car class at only three meters long and it has sliding doors on the side so you can fit the thing into cramped parking spaces.

The inside of the car can be configured with space for up to six seats or three seats and a surprising amount of storage room. I would hate to think how cramped it would be ride in a 3 meter long car with six people inside. The car is also designed to allow the owner to change the style of the outside of the car and the interior. Check out the videos of the little car below.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
