This vehicle features EV components in unique and innovative way that perhaps you’ve never seen before. The blue plate that you see at the front end is inductive charging, while at the rear end, you’ll find fast-charge plug. The battery itself is located at the center form of the car as part of aerodynamically sleek and polished body. If other concept cars hide control and drivetrain system, Valmet Dawn prefers to expose these components for display purposes in a way that easily understandable. It is hoped that through Valmet Dawn demonstration, there will be more exploration in developing fresh and modern concept of electric vehicle without sacrificing its performance and appearance.
