System integration for e-mobility

The future is electric

Quiet with zero emission – this is how we will move along in the future. Powered by electricity from renewable energy sources, mobility may become perfectly emission-free. Today, numerous field trials have been conducted to test the electric cars' suitability for daily use. While the electric engine is already state-of-the-art, battery technology remains a challenge of e-mobility. High costs, limited ranges and time-consuming battery charging are the major hurdles for accessing the mass market. However, significant progress has been made in recent years. The demand for emission-free mobility is high and electric cars may completely displace conventional combustion vehicles from the centers of larger cities.

MAGNUM solutions for electric mobility

Mia

The Mia is a plug-in electric city-car, which was designed purely as an urban vehicle serving daily needs with a maximum range of up to 130 km. It is a unique concept meeting prospective needs of mobility today. Is is about ease of urban use, zero emissions, and low running costs.

Drive evolves from a standard battery allowing a range of 80 to 90 km. Full recharging via a standard domestic 220v socket takes 3 hours. The optional, more powerful versions reach up to a range of 120 to 130 km and fully recharge within 5 hours, whereby partial recharging is possible since the Mia battery is not affected by any memory effect. The core of every vehicle lies in the quiet electric motor placed in the middle. Its energy is generated by patented packs, which can be charged via a standard domestic 220v socket.

Three versions of the same basic, battery-powered design are available: standard wheelbase, long wheelbase, and box van models. Each has a central driving position, plastic bodywork, and a pair of sliding doors as well as ample storage space. The Mia offers space for 1 to 4 passengers and with a weight of 750 kg it is lighter than a conventional compact car. Items can be easily stowed in the 260l trunk.

The Mia is emission-free, convenient, and electrical.

C-Zen

A revolutionary design for a passenger vehicle, the C-Zen is targeted at urban commuters, particularly the younger generation of drivers. As a sportive two-seater, the car plays on its visual appeal.

The all-electric vehicle has been designed from the ground up to utilize patented packs. Drive evolves from an electric motor, placed in the middle of the car and allowing a range of 120 km with a top speed of 110 km/h. Full recharging via a domestic 220v socket takes six hours.

Two versions of the same battery-powered design are available: the "quadricycle lourd", which can be legally driven in many European countries from age 16, and the light-duty utility vehicle ("utilitaire léger"). The French government subsidizes the purchase of electric cars, especially in terms of utility vehicles.

The C-Zen constitutes "Origine France Garantie".

Metro

The electric utility vehicle Metro has been recently developed for a successful and future-oriented combination of economy and ecology. As mini-van powered by electric drive with a payload of 500 kg and an unprecedented range of up to 90 km, the Metro is suitable for a typical day trip in distribution transport.

The initial technical position lies within a compact electric motor, placed in the middle of the mini-van. Power supply evolves from packs, which can be recharged via a domestic 220v socket. The Metro reaches a top speed of 80 km/h.

The Metro is equipped with a unique variable superstructure system. Various applications such as dumper including wire-mesh grates, flat bed, van box, or refridgerated box are available. The 2-seater driver cabin provides sufficient cabin space. Centrally arranged foot pedals allow ergonomic seating and make driving more comfortable. With a weight of 575 kg, the Metro is the lightest vehicle in its class and likewise aerodynamic.

The Metro is energy-efficient, eco-friendly, and future-oriented.
