General Motors has revealed its latest car concept, possibly the most significant since the Chevrolet Volt, by the name “EN-V” that promises to make cities a better place to commute and live in. Developed in collaboration with SAIC, the two-seat urban car generates power from a lithium-ion battery backed 3KW electric motor to reach the top speed of 25mph with a range of 25 miles. Developed in three variants, i.e. Xiao, Jiao and Miao, using the same mechanical platform, the zero-emission vehicle is balanced with a series of gyroscopic sensors, while other mechanics are based on the concept of a Segway. Capable of both “vehicle-to-vehicle” and “vehicle-to-network” communication, the EN-V concept integrates different transceivers and cameras, together with a GPS system, to read and recognize its location as well as destination.
