Hybrid powertrain The heart of Mindset is an electric-engine promising quiet, fast and an environmentally- conscious driving experience. A lithium- ion battery guarantees many kilometres of driving fun. If, at the end of the day, the car runs on reserve charge, it can be refuelled within few hours at a power socket nearby. But Mindset isn't just an electric car. Through its built- in range extender, it becomes the hybrid automobile of the plug- in generation. An optional generator continually charges the battery, resulting in longer journeys without a pit- stop. Throughout the charging process the car is powered by electricity. Mindset is designed to represent freedom. The freedom to drive past fuel stations, for instance. Two hours of electricity for the price of an espresso guarantee up to 200km of emission- free driving. As long as mindset's rear light is green, green zones are a thing of the past. Those who like a sporty driving experience can feel free to go: as soon as the " An optional generator continually charges the battery, resulting in longer journeys without a pit- stop"
brakes come on, or the car is driven downhill, energy is replenished through recuperation. With an optional solar roof system, the Mindset vehicle even turns into an individual mobile power station. A single sunny day provides several kilometres of free mobility. And after a few days in the sunshine, the battery is fully recharged. Driving quality Mindset stands for lightweight construction. With its aluminium spaceframe, slim synthetic body and pronounced aerodynamics, it is built like a modern super sports car. A flyweight with a low- slung centre of gravity, the mindset redefines driving quality. It's fun even when driving it relaxed. The unique proportions of its large wheels don't just hark back to early sports cars; the 22in alloys offer security, ride quality and precision, while the tyre profile minimizes the rolling resistance, improves consumption and lowers air particle emissions. Mindset thinks beyond conventions. People of mindset believe in the current paradigm change in private mobility, they want to support and advance this change in a believable way through a unique automobile concept. Mindset is not offering a future vision but a sustainable, contemporary automobile for everyday use, one to attract people who like cars and enjoy driving.
