Title
(EN) MODULAR VEHICLE STRUCTURE
(FR) STRUCTURE DE VÉHICULE MODULAIRE
Abstract
(EN) A modular vehicle system includes a cabin module, front end module, and rear end module. The cabin module includes a floor structure of the vehicle and has a front end and a rear end, and a plurality of panels extending upwardly from the floor structure. The front end module is configured to include the front wheels of the vehicle. The rear end module is configured to include rear wheels of the vehicle. The front end module is configured to securely attach to the front end of the cabin module, and the rear end module is configured to securely attach to the rear end of the cabin module. Various types of modules can be constructed and assembled to define various types of vehicles. The floor structure of the cabin module may include an electric vehicle battery, and different cabin modules may have different battery types enabling different vehicle ranges.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un système de véhicule modulaire qui comprend un module de cabine, un module d'extrémité avant et un module d'extrémité arrière. Le module de cabine comprend une structure de plancher du véhicule et présente une extrémité avant et une extrémité arrière, et une pluralité de panneaux s'étendant vers le haut à partir de la structure de plancher. Le module d'extrémité avant est configuré pour comprendre les roues avant du véhicule. Le module d'extrémité arrière est configuré pour comprendre des roues arrière du véhicule. Le module d'extrémité avant est configuré pour être fixé de manière sûre à l'extrémité avant du module de cabine et le module d'extrémité arrière est configuré pour être fixé de manière sûre à l'extrémité arrière du module de cabine. Divers types de modules peuvent être construits et assemblés pour définir divers types de véhicules. La structure de plancher du module de cabine peut comprendre une batterie de véhicule électrique et différents modules de cabine peuvent présenter différents types de batterie permettant différentes gammes de véhicule.
