Icona Shows Off Electric City Car Concept In Paris

Best known for its crazy Vulcano supercar concept, Icona has displayed the all-electric Neo Concept city car at Paris’ Festival Automobile International 2016.

The car was originally unveiled at last year’s Shanghai auto show and gives as a glimpse at how an accessible, efficient and affordable model from the company could look like.

The compact city car uses a drivetrain sourced from ACTUA and Italian firm Italtechnica. It incorporates four individual electric motors and a large battery pack delivering a total of 28 hp.

In spite of this output, Icona claims that the Neo can reach a top speed of 120 km/h (74 mph) and has a range of about 150 km (93 miles) thanks in part to its low 720 kg kerb weight.

Moreover, while measuring just 3.4 metres long, 1.5 metres high, is 1.63 metres wide and with a tiny 2.2 metre wheelbase, the company claims it can seat four adults in comfort.

It’s unclear when and if the car will reach the production line but if that happens, its edgy design will bring something fresh to the often-bland city car segment.
