Mando Footloose IM is a new concept in e-mobility using the latest automotive technology. It features a built-in Series Hybrid System motor to power the vehicle without chains. The vehicle operation is fully managed by an automotive-level Electronic Control Unit paired with CAN communication. The unit generates power with an alternator and offers a choice between throttle and pedal-power.
