It has been two years since German company EDAG first introduced its Light Car Open Source concept at the Geneva Motor Show. Making its debut at this year's show is the latest version of the Light Car, which builds upon the previous concept and keeps pushing forward on a way to reduce the high cost of acquiring an electric vehicle. This is why EDAG is advocating car sharing with this concept as a way to get more zero emission vehicles on the road.
The all-electric Light Car is perfect for city driving with an expected 62-mile range and 62 mile per hour top speed. Lithium-ion batteries are mounted in the floor to keep them safe in the event of an accident and the car's exterior uses fiber-based composites and plastic parts to keep the weight of the body panels to a minimum. As with the previous incarnation – which was much sleeker and cooler looking (see here) – the new Light Car is able to communicate with other vehicles using body-panel mounted OLEDs. Check out the gallery below to see more images of the concept, including some interior renderings.
