This EV Tilts Like a Motorcycle for Sharp Turns
Author: Cory Gunther
Nimbus explains its three-wheeled EV as a machine that “combines the convenience and cost of a motorbike with the safety and comfort of a car.” And judging by these photos, that description is fairly accurate. The skinny, pod-style EV takes up around 25% of a parking space and is far smaller than a traditional vehicle. It comes in around 2.75 feet wide and 7.5 feet long. Nimbus says it’s 3-5x smaller than a compact car. And while it may look like a one-seater, there’s room behind the driver for a second passenger, or you can use that space to store groceries and other items. Perhaps the best part of the Nimbus One is the unique tilting feature. Nimbus is developing a proprietary tilting technology to help it safely take corners with precision and speed. And unlike a scooter or motorcycle, the driver doesn’t have to lean. Instead, the Nimbus One does it for you, when necessary, at certain speeds.
