ZF’s Smart Urban Vehicle: the future of city driving

German-based driveline firm ZF is showing off some of its ideas for urban driving with a new subcompact concept car.

 

So what does the future look like?
The Smart Urban Vehicle has been designed by ZF from scratch, and showcases the company’s electric technology as well as being highly maneuverable and integrated with mobiles, smart watches and the like.

Underneath the bonnet
Well, there’s nothing there actually. The concept car uses ZF’s electric twist beam unit, with two 40kW asynchronous motors integrated into the suspension and driving each wheel independently. With axle torque of 1,400Nm and a maximum of 21,000rpm, the car is tuned for city driving and has a top speed of 150km/h.

Getting about in town
The front wheels are designed to turn up to 75° and the torque-vectoring system on the rear wheels distributes drive individually, making parking easy and complicated three-point turns a thing of the past. In fact, you don’t need even need to be in the car, thanks to ZF’s autonomous drive technology – the Smart Urban Vehicle will go off and find a space itself.
