Danish Bicycle Maker Biomega Unveils Its First Car, the SIN Electric Concept

Danish bicycle manufacturer Biomega has decided to do what Peugeot, Opel and Skoda did more than a century ago and build its first car.

Known for its designer bikes, Biomega has unveiled its first four-wheel vehicle concept in Shanghai. Named SIN after the city-state of Singapore, it’s the company’s vision of a back-to-basics EV.

The name also puts it in line with the brand’s bicycles; that’s because all Biomega bikes are named with three-letter abbreviations of cities that inspired some elements of their design.

The company says its target with the SIN is to take its principles of social innovation, design thinking, and urban mobility and apply them to the automotive industry. Basically, Biomega founder Jens Martin Skibsted says the study is “another step in the natural progression of our ongoing battle against the combustion car.”

The four-door SIN may not look like a crossover utility vehicle (CUV), but that’s exactly how Biomega describes it. It’s designed to get passengers and cargo from A to B “in the most efficient way possible, minimizing time, money and power spent.”

To do that, the SIN adopts a less-is-more philosophy, using minimal components and lightweight materials. For example, the vehicle features four independent electric motors mounted on the outer sides of the wheels. Furthermore, the body shell is made of CFRP with aluminum crossbeams.

Thanks to the use of lightweight composite materials and clever packaging, the SIN weighs just 950 kg (2,094 lbs). That includes the 20-kWh battery pack that tips the scales at 200 kg (440.9 lbs). Located under the floor, the batteries feature a modular swapping system that helps ease range anxiety.
