Biomega is best known for producing designer electric bicycles. The firm has now dipped its toe into the world of auto production with the Biomega Concept Electric car, called the SIN. The name is a contraction of Singapore, in keeping with the firm’s tradition of naming its bicycles after cities. In transitioning from two- to four-wheels Biomega takes the lead from other car makers such as Peugeot and Opel.

SIN for cities
SIN has been designed for urban/city environments. The Danish company says that it will release a production version by 2021 that will be competitively priced. The construction makes extensive use of lightweight materials, including carbon-fibre. Unladen it is said to weigh in at 950 kg, 200 kg of that mass is the battery alone. The battery back has been designed to fit under the body and can be easily removed and replaced with a fully charged unit.
Biomega concept electric car was designed to seat four passengers, thought it seems with minimal weather protection, much like a bike. The interior is minimalist, as the car should ideally be confined to the urban jungle. The seats are fabric covered frames, there is no infotainment system or, seemingly, any HVAC.
Speaking of the battery the Biomega concept electric car runs on pure battery power. It has one electric motor per wheel. Total system power is 60 kW with a peak torque value of 160 N.m. Biomega says the SIN has a fully charged battery range of 160 km. The new automaker claims that the SIN can sprint from 0-100 km/h in 13 seconds and it has a maximum speed of 130 km/h.
Biomega founder Jens Martin Skibsted says the study is “another step in the natural progression of our ongoing battle against the combustion car.”
