The Qbeak is an electric city vehicle that is being worked upon by Denmark-based ECOmove, and this time around, it is said that the third prototype of the vehicle is under development, with insider information claiming that the Qbeak is “very close” to its finished version. Compared to its predecessors, the existing prototype is said to be lighter than ever before, and this can only translate to one thing – the Qbeak’s single-charge range would have been increased. ECOMove is currently sounding the clarion call to explore potential partnerships with automobile component makers, touting that the final version will be ready by the time 2014 rolls around.
ECOmove began work on the first Qbeak prototype in 2009, where it also picked up the ‘European Electric Vehicles Early Stage Investment Opportunity Award’ from UK-based Frost & Sullivan in March. We do hope that by the time 2014 rolls around, the Qbeak would be even more advanced than where it is today, so much so that it would end up as the definition of an electric vehicle that is easy on the wallet and yet works great.
