Hemisferio Criativo Nimbus E-Car Is Built for Eco-Friendly Adventure

Published May 10, 2015

There are e-cars and the Hemisferio Criativo Nimbus e-car, and it only takes a quick glance to discern the difference. This electric vehicle isn’t just designed for short-distance drives in town, the Nimbus e-car can go just about anywhere while leaving the smallest ecological footprint possible.

The hybrid Nimbus concept e-car features a 140 hp electrical engine that is powered by a lithium-ion battery and has a top speed of approximately 100 mph, going from 0 to 60 mph in 13 seconds. A micro-combustion generator works to keep that battery charged in conjunction with solar panels on part of the vehicle’s careen. The regenerative braking system also helps to conserve and recover kinetic energy.

With numerous carbon-fiber, titanium, and aluminum components, the Hemisferio Criativo Nimbus e-car is both lightweight and strong, which contributes to its overall fuel efficiency of approximately 1.3 L of fuel per 63 miles. Depending on factors like range, terrain, and desired energy use, this vehicle’s driver can choose one of these four driving modes: Standard Trip, Energy Saver, Faster Cruise, or 4WD.

Thus far, the reviews of the Nimbus concept e-car have been overwhelmingly positive, and there are frequent references to this electric vehicle being the modern equivalent of the VW bus. Yanko Designs calls it the “New Hippiemobile.” Yahoo! Autos writes, “The Nimbus by Eduardo Galvani takes cues from the original VW bus, but then also bakes in some Baja bug and Lunar lander to make a truly go-anywhere family vehicle.”

The Hemisferio Criativo Nimbus e-car also has plenty of creature comforts to improve the riding experience on long drives or overnight outdoor excursions. Panoramic windows provide exquisite views of passing scenery, a mini-refrigerator keeps drinks cool, and the multi-function convex driver dashboard provides the driver with plenty of information while the removable touchscreen central display and controller provides access to things like Skype on the go.
