The E-Motion is powered by a 94 hp electric motor
The E-Motion is an electrically powered vehicle from Swiss company Mindset. The concept behind the Mindset E-Motion was to create a commuter vehicle designed for European metropolitan areas, where it has the greatest chance of commercial success.

To help achieve low power consumption, and therefore improve performance and range, the E-Motion uses lightweight materials in its construction and a streamlined coupe-like body to increase aerodynamic efficiency.

The chief designer at mindset, Murat Gunak, has adapted the coupe proportions of the E-Motion into a more useful design which is not as limited in space and adaptability as a pure coupe. The interior features a 2+2 seating layout with a bench seat up front. The rear cargo area is accessed through the gullwing-hinged side windows which are laid out in an asymmetric design. On the drivers side is a smaller opening for coats and small bags etc. While on the passenger side the larger opening helps when loading suitcases, golf bags or other bulky items.

Powering the Mindset E-Motion is a 94 horsepower (70 kW) electric motor which gets its power from a lithium-ion battery pack which can be recharged from any standard wall plug. In all-electric mode the E-Motion has a range of up to 120 miles (depending on driving style), for journeys of greater length the vehicle is equipped with a 23 hp (17 kW) internal combustion engine which acts as an electricity generator to top up the battery.

Despite the environmentally friendly drivetrain the Mindset E-Motion can reach 60 mph in around 7 seconds. The top speed is an electronically limited 87 mph.
