General Motor’s second-generation EN-V concept vehicle has been shown at the Detroit motor show. Now carrying the Chevrolet badge, the revised two-seat, electric urban mobility concept adds new features to the original vehicle, including climate control, storage space and can operate in all weathers, according to Chevrolet.
Marketing and strategy vice president Chris Perry said: “By 2030, more than 60 per cent of the world’s eight billion people will live in urban areas. The Chevrolet EN-V represents a possible solution for global customers living in markets where alternative transportation solutions are needed.”
The EN-V’s lithium-ion batteries allow a total travel distance of around 40 kilometres (24 miles) on a single charge.
Thanks to its GPS with vehicle-to-vehicle communications and distance-sensing technologies, the EN-V can be driven manually or autonomously, which “could reduce vehicle crashes” and “reduce traffic congestion,” according to the firm.
