Finland-based Valmet Automotive will debut its own electric concept vehicle called ‘Eva’ at the Geneva Motor Show in two weeks.
The concept vehicle is a 2+2 seat electric city car with a range of up to 160 km (about 100 miles) per one charge.
In engineering the vehicle, lightweight and safe body structures have been combined with innovative electric and recharging systems.
Fortum, a leading energy company focusing on the Nordic countries, Russia and the Baltic Rim area, brought to the project its extensive know-how in recharging systems.
Thanks to the cooperation with Nokia, the car is equipped with a pioneering Human Machine Interface through mobile handset connectivity. The booth will also showcase a demo based on NAVTEQ’s high-quality map data and content which enables green routing and driving functionality use cases.
Valmet Automotive is no stranger to electric vehicles. It’s already working on the series production of the Think City EV and will also assemble the Fisker Karma luxury plug-in hybrid sedan.
