Teijin is using its extensive materials expertise to design a concept vehicle PU_PA EV.
This concept will demonstrate the numerous solutions available through Teijin and its group companies to address the ever-changing needs of the mobility industry as it moves toward a Connected, Autonomous, Shared and Electric (CASE) vehicle future.
Collaboration with Applied EV, a start-up company dedicated the development of LS-EV (Low Speed EV) in Australia, to realize light-weight LS-EV.
Teijin Group has been consolidating not only the material and design capabilities of future EV but also total solution approach in mobility field, in order to contribute “Be a company that support of the future”.
HIJET manufactured by Daihatsu Motor Co., Ltd., is applied as a base vehicle.
In addition to reducing the weight of the vehicle body, TEIJIN propose parts that incorporate the comfort and enjoyment of passengers, as well as dress-ups to exterior for the ultimate sharing car.
COPEN manufactured by Daihatsu Motor Co., Ltd., is applied as a base vehicle.
In addition to reducing the weight of the vehicle body, TEIJIN propose parts that incorporate comfort in the vehicle assuming sharing and customization that is tailored to the tastes of passengers.
Sports EV equipped with the world's first plastic pillarless front window with improved visibility and openness and low perspective distortion.
Front window 36% lighter than conventional combination of window and A-pillars realizes safety and invigorating driving. The CVD hard coat technology provides weather resistance and scratch resistance that meet the vehicle safety standards required for drive on public roads.
Ultra-light weight electric vehicle.
Carbon fiber composite material (CFRP) is used for the body floor and outer panel, and polycarbonate that has 1/2 specific gravity of glass is used for the window integrated with the roof.
The number of parts were reduced to about 20 by applying modularizing design to the parts of vehicle body and 437 kg over all weight achieve.
This car Teijin's first concept car.
It is a next-generation pioneering car that combines the materials of the Teijin Group, and the name "PU_PA" means "pupa with shells".
Carbon fiber “Tenax™” is used for the frame and chassis, and polycarbonate resin “Panlite™” and bio-polycarbonate resin are used for the interior and exterior of windows, meter panels, room lamps, etc.
