- Integration of central elements of leading e-technologies in one floor platform
- Intelligent floor assembly with functions for autonomous driving, various drive technologies and model variants
- High cost efficiency through modularity, mass production, material selection and high application flexibility
- Proven and tested modular concept ensures efficient and fast market access
- ‘Skateboard’ as another important step on the way to the market launch of the new MIA family of electric cars in Europe
fox e-mobility AG (ISIN: DE000A2NB551), a European electric vehicle company that specializes in the production, marketing, and further development of compact electric cars in the lower price segment,presents the new platform concept for the entire family of their battery-powered micro-vans. By integrating all the important technologies of modern electric cars, the upcoming MIA now has an innovative and efficient new kit.
The concept called ‘Skateboard’ is based on a robust, crash-proof and recyclable substructure, which is mainly made of steel. It is designed to integrate all the performance and intelligence of a competitive electric car. The substructure itself is flexible usable for different wheelbases and ground clearances, but the central seating position of the driver is always the same. Further advantages are the simple production method in large numbers, the inexpensive repair strategy, and the integration options for standard parts. The platform allows several derivatives of the MIA product family such as shorter or longer models for three or four passengers or small delivery vans for urban centers with a volume of 1500 liters. This enables fox to achieve a high level of cost efficiency.
The installation options for the battery (a second battery can be installed or retrofitted) and the drive unit on the rear axle with an output of approx. 40 to over 100 kW are based on the principle of modularity. A front motor with 30 kW output can also be installed. The platform is open to technology and prepared for the installation of a fuel cell.
In the field of intelligent technology, the skateboard has its own software ecosystem that can be updated online (‘over the air’) and communicate with other services. It already has level 2+ for autonomous driving. Levels 3 and 4 are prepared in the architecture.
Dr. Christian Jung, CTO of fox e-mobility explains: ‘With the new skateboard, we have an innovative modular concept that competes excellently in terms of costs, performance, technology and market flexibility. It is another significant step on our consistent path to the planned market launch of the MIA in 2023.‘
fox e-mobility AG is a European electric vehicle company that specializes in the production, marketing, and further development of compact electric cars in the lower price segment for both, individual passenger transport as well as logistical applications. The new MIA model is to be manufactured in Europe in cooperation with well-known suppliers to the electrical and automotive industries. The management team consists of seasoned managers and engineers from the world’s largest automotive groups who have in-depth expertise and a comprehensive network for electro-mobility.
