Can this car spark an electric revolution? – The design is certainly head-turning, but it's the eye-catching 500-mile (800-kilometer) range this electric car can achieve which could really set it apart from the competition, say its Danish developers.
Clever chassis – Instead of allowing room for just a single fixed battery pack, ECOmove has built in modules (six in total) inside the chassis of the QBEAK, allowing for a variety of energy sources to be slotted in.
Methanol fuel cell – A methanol fuel cell developed by Danish tech company Serenergy will be used in the car. A chemical process converts the methanol into electricty which charges the battery.
Robust but lightweight design – The QBEAK weighs 425 kilograms without batteries and has a top speed of 120 kph (75 mph).
Patented in-wheel motors – Specially designed in-wheel motors drive the car. ECOmove plan to offer two-wheel and four-wheel drive versions.
Clean car of the future? – Using bio-methanol as a fuel source means that, unlike hydrogen fuel cell cars, the QBEAK could utilize traditional energy and distribution systems at relatively little extra cost, according to ECOmove.
