The General Motors unveiled its newly designed electric car which is capable of beating the traffic blockage and parking difficulty. According to its developers, the two- seater Electronic Networked- vehicle (EN-V) is designed to lighten the common driver concerns and also addresses environmental issues, energy consumption and affordability.
The car rotate 360 degree is a highlight of this car. Another interesting fact is that driver is not necessary for this car. The car can be driven on manual mode by a driver or on autonomous mode without a driver in the car. The car runs on battery power of 40 km on a single charge and with a maximum speed of 40 km per hour.
The car was demonstrated at the 2011 International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas last week. Mr. Chris Borroni- Bird, the Director of Advanced vehicles, general Motors said that, “This vehicle is going to be increasingly needed in the markets where we hope to grow our business. It’s really a step from a bike. We think it will be less expensive than a car but more practical to move around in”.
The EN-V Xiao is advanced with a specialized technology which is developed by its OnStar subsidiary that allows it to talk to other cars, anticipate dangers and scan blocks for available parking spaces.
The company has not yet confirmed the date for when the EN-V xiao will be in the market.
