EDGE6

Self-made electric motors - the first electric car!

With the EDGE6, an electric car was built for the first time that is powered by electric motors developed in-house. These can impress with 40kW peak power with a weight of less than 4kg. Despite the 43kg “light” battery pack and a strong increase in performance, the weight could be reduced slightly.

Total weight: 165kg

0-100 km / h in 3.2s

Power: 80kW
