Lina is a four-seat efficient electrical City Car. Lina weighs only 300 kilograms which is realized using a structural bio composite material. This material is comparable with carbon fibre, but more than 90% biological. Lina’s chassis is based on a sandwich construction, realized by pressing two composite sheets against a 95% biological honeycomb PLA.
