e'mo is a lightweight electric vehicle for town and local traffic, of a completely new design. Its name stands equally for electric motion and for efficient mobility. Thanks to its very low ready-for-the-road weight of only 350 kg, e'mo is very energy-efficient and thus extremely inexpensive to run. With the top folded down in summer it’s a pure joy to drive, but with the fabric top up there’s no problem even on the wettest days. Whether on the way to work, doing the shopping or for a short trip to the countryside, e'mo has room enough for most everyday needs. The cheeky little e'mo is very practical, and gives a novel feeling of carefree mobility.
To develop e'mo, StauffacherBenz worked together with the Institute for Materials Science and Plastic Processing of the Technical University of Rapperswil in Switzerland. The car was first seen in public at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show. Development continues, with the goal of putting the car on the market in the near future.
Conceptual design in co-operation with Sandra Kaufmann.
