Spira, an international Finalist, has continued their push to launch a unique vehicle exclusive to the Asian automotive markets. The Spira4U, currently being developed by an American team based in Thailand, has a foam body construction. The vehicle showcased in the competition was powered by an internal combustion engine, but the team has recently begun collaboration with Electric Motorsport and the Tiger Motorcycle factory to create an electric Spira.
“We are considering a couple of partners for producing electric Spiras for export. We are concentrating on an electric version as we are still seeking a gas scooter engine supplier that will meet emissions in the USA and Europe,” states Lon Ballard, CEO. While developing new versions of the Spira4U, the team continues to work through vehicle safety requirements including vehicle crash performance.
