The young company XEV is currently collecting money on the crowdfunding platform Kickstarter to build Yoyo, a groundbreaking electric car. Supporters have the opportunity to secure a Yoyo on the platform at reduced rates. It seems that 3D-printed car parts offer a high level of customization while simultaneously reducing the waste and cost associated with traditional vehicles.
Despite many unique details, the proportions of the Yoyo are similar to well-known smart cars. With a length of 2.50 meters, the little Italian car also turns out similarly short.
Many other publications overlook breaking business news focused on marketing or other business strategies. The Born2Invest mobile app helps readers to be up-to-date with the newest information in this field and others, among which finance, biotech, cannabis, fintech, and crowdfunding.
In addition, the electric car is very light weighing in at just 750 kilograms. The Yoyo also remains modest in terms of power consumption. The electric motor delivers 7.5 kW/10 PS continuous power but can provide a 30-second boost of 22 kW/30 PS for intermediate spurts. The maximum speed is 70 km/h. Due to the limited mileage, it is classified as a light motor vehicle.
This is a car that massively reduces the cost of driving, produces no pollution and allows a level of customization far beyond what is currently available. The Yoyo is a small, all-electric two-seater car that was designed to be perfectly adapted to the modern urban environment. Compact dimensions of just 2.5 m x 1.5 m mean you can park it almost anywhere, while its Torquay electric motor allows you to zip around the traffic cleanly and efficiently.
The battery system
A lithium-iron-phosphate battery with a capacity of 9.2-kilowatt-hours is used to store electricity. The range is specified as 150 kilometers. The battery consists of four removable blocks located behind a flap in the lower rear area. This battery system is intended to allow spontaneous replacement if a battery replacement service can be found in the nearby.
Although the Yoyo as a light vehicle has to meet fewer safety requirements than normal passenger cars, it will have ABS, airbags and a front crumple zone. Also, the electric car has some amenities. For example, there is air conditioning, a touch screen, electric windows, and power steering. Anyone who wants a Yoyo can order it at a reduced price as part of the Kickstarter campaign. The Special Bird version is sold for around $6,672 (€6000). The fully equipped Signature Edition is sold for $8,341 (€7500).
