H-due: Electric-Hydrogen Powered Personal Mobility Concept Vehicle 2009-01-0090
H-due, a concept of light electric vehicle devoted to personal mobility, will here be presented. The main goals involve the creation of a low-noise, user-friendly, zero-emission vehicle, with a pleasant style. Its main features include high payload/vehicle mass ratio, electric energy supplied either by batteries or by fuel cell, innovative style aimed at transporting a driver and a passenger, chassis design to minimize cost of production, variable wheelbase. The paper presents the main ideas on which the vehicle design was based and summarizes the most important results obtained.
