VISION & CONCEPT
DRAGONFLY: THREE WORLD FIRSTS
A lightweight off-grid electric car
Produced locally to be sold locally
MOBILITY THAT CLEANS UP THE AIR
Press ConferenceCatecar Industries SA, a Swiss company based in La Tour-de-Peilz (VD), is to unveil the Dragonfly prototype at its press conference on Tuesday, 7 March 2017, at 15.30, in Hall 6 Stand 6229, at the Geneva Motor Show.
The role of the car revised and corrected by an alternative vision of mobility. That idea led to the Dragonfly concept. Nowadays, cars are generally stationary for 22 hours out of 24 and pollute for 2 hours out of 24. However, they are still responsible for 40% of all pollution. Catecar proposes a living vehicle.
Dragonfly: a lightweight (560 kg) off-grid electric car
Light weight thanks to the adoption of bodywork using plant-based materials and few batteries, charged by a solar roof and a range extender, free this vehicle from all reliance on an electricity grid.
Dragonfly: MOBILITY THAT CLEANS UP THE AIR
An air filter captures fine particles in the ambient air round the clock at the rate of 30 to 100 m3/h.
Dragonfly: produced locally to be sold locally
Catecar’s new automobile business model enables turnkey production units to be set up anywhere, in association with local partners keen to invest in a new kind of mobility requiring only a small investment outlay.
Dragonfly: a technology suitable for use anywhere in the world
The technologies adopted will enable Dragonfly to be used everywhere, in town and countryside, on islands and continents like Africa which will not have access to charging stations for a long time to come.
Dragonfly: a market open to businesses and private individuals.
