Zagreb-based speciality vehicle manufacturer DOK-ING will unveil the XD, Croatia’s first electric car, at the Geneva Motor Show in March.
Constructors and engineers at DOK-ING, one of the international leaders in designing and manufacturing multi-purpose robotic vehicles, have been working on the project for the last four years, and have singlehandedly succeeded in creating a new electric automobile.
Three seats car has been designed primarily as an ecologically acceptable vehicle to be used for city driving. The whole project has been developed at DOK-ING while an industrial designer Igor Juric, exclusively responsible for the car image, signs the car design.
Customers will have a choice between a cheaper solution consisting of lead battery and a new generation battery made of lithium - iron - phosphate that is light, ecologically acceptable and non-combustible.
Following two hours charging, the car will be able to cover 250 km. The maximum speed of 130 kilometers an hour can be adjusted according to customers' requirements.
The price will vary according to the chosen battery, desired autonomy and the car equipment. The car will be equipped with the regenerative brake system enabling it to recharge during braking. The warranty period for the car, excluding the battery, is 5 years.
The car, which is 2.8 metres long, 1.7 metres wide and 1.6 metres high, has modern rounded lines giving it a sporty look and can be fully personalized according to client's needs and preferences.
Electric car advantages are lesser pollution and cheaper fuel as well as a rather long usage without any need for servicing.
