The design of the Bianchi e-SUV is highly innovative.

The full carbon frame shows edgy shaped triangles, inspired by the Dolomites to create a connection between nature and technology.

 

e-SUV Concept

 

INTEGRATION

  • Integrated motor unit and battery
  • Integrated handlebar
  • Integrated lights (front and rear)

 

BATTERY

The Bianchi SUV features a 720Wh fully integrated battery.

The battery cover features a unique cooling system inspired by the self ventilated facased in modern architecture. It works as a forced air vertical duct that prevents the engine and the battery from overheating. An intake allows the fresh air to enter from the top. The fresh air flows trough an internal duct above the battery and escapes from the bottom. This flow works as a vacuum system reduces the heat of both the battery and the motor.

 

HANDLEBAR

The handlebar is designed as a single lighweight carbon element with integrated cable system.

The design of the handlebar can be completed with an extension that features additional controls such as GPS and battery level.
