A safe, high performance urban
Obvio!´s vehicles will
meet or exceed all USA D.O.T safety standards, all European
Community Standards, and all Japan and China safety standards.
The Obvio !´s Monocoque chassis is bonded together with the body
shell high-protection structure in a special process of reinforced
composites in RTM Light – Resin Transfer Molding. The internal and
external panels are in special high-tech Bio-Plastic from GE
Plastics and delivers an “A” class finishing.
The body shell and integrated chassis form a high strength monocoque
structure, providing full passenger protection in rollovers, front,
rear, and side impacts.
Single piece, bonded construction yields high torsion and flexional
stiffness, providing a solid body with superior handling.
The “Niess Elliptical Survival Rings” allow the Monocoque chassis to
function as a passenger safety cell, designed to distribute any
impact throughout the vehicle’s structure. These elliptical survival
rings are based on technology developed and patented by the
Aeronautical Engineer Mr. Marc William Niess, who was acquired by
Acessories and iMobile carputer:
A/C, bucket seats, power
windows/mirrors/power locks, and leather.
iMobile Carputer: Gives you one display with live vehicle diagnostic
and maintenance tools, voice assisted turn-by-turn navigation,
integrated organizer with mobile device sync ability, a mobile media
center incorporating features normally expected from a home theater
system*, web connectivity, emergency services, and safety features
such as a rear view monitoring camera….an Obvio! experience like no
A mid mount engine, with high-power motor and CVT transmission,
scissor-doors and a unique design... this is definitely going to be
