Events

For the past month, the E2 has been touring all around southern and western Finland, being on display for all sorts of crowds. At one point, Minister of economic affairs, Mika Lintilä, and Mayor of Seinäjoki, Jorma Rasinmäki, visited our offices at Seinäjoki and fell in love with the E2 prototype.

The final event of this tour will be at Vaunula Premium in Helsinki on Friday 8th of March. If you still haven’t seen the E2 or want to see it again, come visit us at Takoraudantie 3 between 13:00 to 18:00 this Friday.

 

Development

Meanwhile at our prototype workshop, two test rim motors have been getting a good beating. With a combined 36 000 km already on the meter, we can’t seem to get our bearings to break. So far we have simulated ridiculously hot conditions and non-stop highway speeds all day every day, but the motors just keep on rolling unscuffed. Next, we will continue to push the construction further to find its limits.
