The driver seat is position in the middle of the e-car to ease driver for getting in or out from either side. ECOmove claims that QBEAK’s running costs will be less than half the price of maintaining a standard fossil fuel powered car, while the build-up of QBEAK is using non-corrosive materials that could sustain minor collisions, where those parts are also recyclable or rebuild-able.
Moreover, if you love to customize your own QBEAK, ECOmove promises customization for each indivuidual owner of the car to suit different taste and lifestyle. QBEAK could get up to six seats or alternatively less seats and more room for a spacious driving experience.
