One standard parking space will fit three Nimbus One

The Nimbus One has been in development since 2019, with startup founder Lihan Nong managing to raise $5.1 million in investment for the project. The production model has already passed all the tests.

The Nimbus One electric tricycle reaches only 2.3 meters in length and 0.86 meters in width. Such compact dimensions make it possible to fit three such electric vehicles in one standard parking space.

In the interior, a passenger sits behind the driver

Nimbus One looks like a capsule on wheels. The body is made of steel and durable plastic and weighs only 375 kg.

In the cabin, the passenger sits behind the driver, just like in a motorcycle. The Nimbus One has the standard steering wheel, pedals, and even an airbag, and the instrument readings are displayed on a special tablet.

The power of the motor Nimbus One has not yet been disclosed, but it is known that the electric car can reach 80 km/h and accelerates to 50 km/h in 3 seconds.

Two batteries with a total capacity of 9 kWh provide a range of 150 km. They can be charged in 5.5 hours, and it can even be done at home – the batteries can be easily removed from the car.

Production of the electric car begins in September 2023, but you can order it now, making an advance payment of $ 100. The Nimbus One will only cost $10,000 and can also be leased for $200 a month.
