Electric Car Twike

The energy is in NiCd battery with a rated voltage of 336 volts and a capacity of 3-8,0 Ah per battery module, which are summarized stored in 280 round cells. The charging of the batteries up to 230 V supply voltage, depending on the version (2 or 3 modules) 1.5 to 3 hours. As an alternative, have been tested presented at the Twike 05 Challenge to the Black Sea NiMH battery with twice the capacity (18 Ah). Achieved with these new cell stage were up to 130 km without charge. The German manufacturer of Twike, Fine Mobile delivers them because of technical problems since mid-2007 but no more.

For the drive system provides a three-phase - electric motor with an output of 3 kW and an optional pedal drive for driver and front passenger. Thus Twike can reach a speed of 85 km / h in the plane. The Twike is constructed from an aluminum frame, covered with a plastic shell (Luran S). The Twike is steered by a joystick located between the two drivers, speeding and slowing at the same time. A Rekuperationsbremse braking power is fed into the batteries. The entrance is by opening the hood, bearing the laminated glass or Plexiglas, and the detachable convertible or Targa top.

Twike 1997 was founded the club in Switzerland. It represents the interests of drivers against the manufacturer and the public. Twike The club is also committed to the dissemination of existing efficient and lightweight vehicles. The club is international and has 248 members (as of March 2009). Several events in the history of the Twike Challenge 1998, the North Cape, the Twike Challenge 2005 along the Danube to the Black Sea, in the World Solar Challenge 2007 and TWIKEinBERN Twike 2007 participation, with 120 on the Federal Square in Bern.

The range is between 40 and 150 km with a consumption of about 4-8 kWh / 100 km. This corresponds to approximately 12,6 Megajoules. Not consume an average car with fuel consumption of 5-10 liters per 100 km (about 200-400 MJ energy) more than ten times as much energy. The low energy consumption is mainly the high efficiency of electric propulsion, but also the best aerodynamic shape and lightweight (aluminum) with plastic.

The interior is spartan in its basic version, in the vicinity of the interior, the suspension is very hard. The entering and exiting "from above" is not very comfortable. The car is very quiet from the outside, but inside quite loud without the equipment options side carpet and the sky. This also applies to older vehicles. The 3x3 has developed by FINE Mobile Engine, which is installed in new cars today, is almost noiseless. A heater is not standard equipment, but is offered as an option. If the heating is not necessary to Twike.active once mitpedalt while driving. The great wheel tends to fogging and freezing in winter fast help - but in contrast to the standard built-in defroster.
