Square-Box

_Project

_Square-Box is a reflexion about a concept of long-life electric car which is able to progress during its use thanks to a modular architecture.

_Square-Box is made of a chassis, body and suspensions which represent a "long life" base.

_This base is developed with excellent quality elements and quality materials to have a minimum lifespan of at least twenty years and is designed to be easily repairable.

_Twenty years is the minimum time necessary to amortize the gray energy spent in its manufacture before recycling its components.

 

_On Square Box, the battery, the motor and the electronic components are removable modules.

_This configuration allows a simplified "Upgrade" of each of these components at any time during the life of the vehicle and at the customer's discretion.

-These upgrades solve the problem of the rapid obsolescence of technological performance and range of today's electric cars, which is a brake on these vehicles purchase.

_Disassembled modules can be reused for a second static life, reconditioned or recycled.

_Its very simple design is not retro design.


_It reflects a design that is based on the extreme simplification of all components while maintaining the necessary primary functions.


_The use of electronic components that are difficult to recycle is limited to strictly necessary functions.


_Kouma Square-Box is composed of three times fewer parts than a standard vehicle, which mathematically improves its reliability and maintenance costs.
