MULTI-MOBY is an ambitious project aiming at quickly finalising the results of a cluster of European GV and FoF projects addressing the development of technology for safe, efficient and affordable urban electric vehicles. A fleet of multi-passenger and multi-purpose commercial vans will be manufactured assuring:

  • Best-in-class safety for occupants and Vulnerable Road Users (VRUs) protection as required by the M1/N1 regulations
  • Driving automation capabilities by adopting the most extensively tested sensing and computing platforms, with the addition of low-cost scanning and night vision functionalities
  • High efficiency 48V and 100V powertrains adopting the most advanced power semiconductor technologies, including Si, SiC and GaN
  • Robust battery packs based on hybrid cells with specific energy close to 200Wh/kg at pack level
  • On-board charger integrating a DCxxV-DC12V converter optimised for the two voltages of interest
  • A standardised low cost charging system able to operate DC charging at 48V and 100V
  • Advanced Electric Electronic (EE) architecture with secure procedures for remote updates and upgrades of the firmware and predictive maintenance, by applying advanced artificial intelligence (AI) methodologies
  • Application of low-cost, flexible, agile and lean manufacturing through a low-investment micro-factory concept
  • Competitive price positioning with respect to existing and forthcoming fully electric urban passenger and commercial vehicles.
