This French car is brilliant. It has only 580 parts (instead of 10,000 plus) and can be configured how you want. Because it built around modules you can update it without having to trade the whole care in. Its ugly but appealing…the French are masters at that.
XYT — Simplifying EVs
Aside from simplicity, what separates these cars from other cars is their modular and customisable design. Instead of the one-size-fits-all type of offering delivered by other manufacturers, the XYT gives the option of customizing and changing the vehicle based on your needs and desires. The cars are assembled locally by teams of professionals. Noting that the car has just 580 pieces may not say much to you, but this is compared to the usual 6,000 to 10,000 pieces that are used in a classic car design — that can give you an idea of how much of a difference this is.
If you’re thinking that this stripped back approach might compromise on safety, fear not, the vehicles have already passed all crash tests and are more than roadworthy.
The vision of XYT is to create vehicles that can be modernized over time to extend their lifespan. This kind of customisable, modular approach is already present in other technologies, so it will be intriguing to see how this plays out in the electric vehicle market over the long term. We have reached out to XYT to find out more information on the price, range, and availability of the vehicles, and we’ll update the article with more information as and when we have it.
- We are convinced that the future of professional mobility rests on new areas of value creation.
Modular, clean and mobile.
- These new mobile spaces, useful even when they are stopped, will allow professionals to create new experiences for their clients
and urban architects to reinvent public spaces.
Lets hope this one gets legs. For developing nations his is a perfect platform to get people started for local manufacturing and assembly.
