    A safe, high performance urban vehicle:

    Obvio!´s vehicles will meet or exceed all USA D.O.T safety standards, all European Community Standards, and all Japan and China safety standards.

    The Obvio !´s Monocoque chassis is bonded together with the body shell high-protection structure in a special process of reinforced composites in RTM Light – Resin Transfer Molding. The internal and external panels are in special high-tech Bio-Plastic from GE Plastics and delivers an “A” class finishing.

    The body shell and integrated chassis form a high strength monocoque structure, providing full passenger protection in rollovers, front, rear, and side impacts.

    Single piece, bonded construction yields high torsion and flexional stiffness, providing a solid body with superior handling.

    The “Niess Elliptical Survival Rings” allow the Monocoque chassis to function as a passenger safety cell, designed to distribute any impact throughout the vehicle’s structure. These elliptical survival rings are based on technology developed and patented by the Aeronautical Engineer Mr. Marc William Niess, who was acquired by Obvio !
