AIT – Urban EV
URBAN-EV is an electric city vehicle which fulfills specification of L7e vehicle class, which meets the crash requirements of the vehicle class M1.
The project aims for a weight reduction of about 17%. The swiveling rear axle leads to a smaller space requirement in stationary traffic. The vehicle structure consists of a crashworthy two-link frame structure and provides safe space for the batteries. When manufacturing the frame structure, the joining of the integrated casting nodes uses Electromagnetic Pulse Technology as an alternative to fusion welding.
