Electric cars are today a reality in many streets of the world. But LINA, it goes beyond imagining. It is the world's first biodegradable car.
And of course, why not also think about what to do when the vehicle stops working in the future to make it truly sustainable.
LINA is made almost entirely of beet and flax-based materials, except for the wheels and suspension systems.
The beet is the basis of the bioplastic that shapes the chassis which, in turn, is wrapped in sheets of biocomposite obtained from flax, to provide greater rigidity to the whole. The result is a car that is light, but as strong as fiberglass.
This small bio car has capacity for 4 people and supports a weight of 310kg. Its autonomy is 100km in the city. Measure3.5 meters long, 1.3 meters wide and between 1.3 and 1.4 meters high.
The prototype of this vehicle devised by students of the Eindhoven University of Technology has modular batteries with an output power of 8kW and can reach a maximum speed of around 80 kilometers per hour.
