named "Luciole" was developed by "Eco-Vehicle Project" that The National
Institute for Environmental Studies leaded .
"luciole" diary, Feel firefly
- Luciole was designed from the Ground Up.
- Luciole is a tandem two seats car whose width is just 1.2m which is less than a half of large scale buses and trucks.
- Saving Energy
- Solar cells also charges batteries.
- In Wheel Motor
A blush-less DC motor, a planetary reduction gear, a hub bearing and a drum
break are mounted inside each rear wheels.
This motor made low Energy consumption because of low mechanical loss,
and hight space utility because we don't need engine room.
- Battery Built-in Frame
A hollow beam structure is made by aluminium extrusion to construct a frame structure.
BBF helps to lower a center of gravity.
- Battery Management System
Local charging system that manage each battery voltage and temperature
made it possible to extend the lofe time of batteries and charging efficiency.
low rolling drag tire, high efficient head and rear lamps and etc. are
