Geneva, Switzerland -- EDAG, an engineering specialist, is presenting its electric-powered concept car incorporating polyurethane technology at this year's International Motor Show currently running in Geneva.
The "Light Car Open Source" is an independent design concept for the electric-powered car of the future, said a 3 March statement from EDAG.
According to the Swiss company, the car uses a special space frame structure covered with lightweight plastic outer skin panels -- "Class A-type PU RIM" components.
"With a minimum of capital expenditure and using polyurethane technology, it is possible to bring about weight-optimised exterior skin components that can be used economically in low-volume series, while providing a high degree of design freedom," the statement said.
