Mobicar was an R&D project for the design, development, testing and demonstration of the main modules that comprehend the new requirements of mobility, energy and information systems with application to different platforms for electric mobility environments. Those modules included the seat, the interior, the exterior, the powertrain, and the vehicle platform.
The goals of this project were:
To attract new investment associated to new logics of motorization and mobility services;
To develop a national industrial cluster with capacity to design, develop, industrialize and test electric vehicles and integrated services for the new environments of sustainable mobility;
To position Portugal as a world reference in Electric Mobility and export an integrated solution [system, service and vehicle].
