Aixam - Some Features


Have you ever heard of a quadricycle? What about a monocoque body? You are probably wondering what the heck I am talking about and you'll probably be surprised when I say that I am talking about the newest form of automobile technology. Yes, that's right, we're talking about Aixam automobiles, a French company that has not only turned the automobile industry upside down, but also has created new technology that can have a tremendous impact on what you spend to buy a car and keep it fueled.

Aixam automobiles have been produced in a variety of models since 1984, however it wasn't until several years later that the company ditched full sized models and started perfecting the half-car model. The terms above refer to the type of machine that the Aixam half car is and oddly enough it isn't a motorcycle. They use 4 wheel independent suspension along with an aluminum allow frame to create a compact car that is both safe and practical. The Aixam vehicle makes maximum use of its technology to deliver a great vehicle at a superb price.

The Aixam line uses in-line 2 cylinder engines that use indirect injection and liquid cooling for max efficiency. The front-wheel drive diesel engines can get upwards of 60 to 90 miles per gallon. The maximum speed is typically only 30 miles per hour to 60 miles per hour, but that can be reduced by filling up the 4 seats inside of the vehicle. These vehicles are small, but the technology is sound and very well thought out. There is nothing in these vehicles that doesn't need to be there, technology wise, and they make the best use of their space as possible. It is no wonder that they are so popular.

With the Aixam models, you get a vehicle that can fit 4 people, with luggage, and still maintain moderate speeds and excellent fuel economy. It is no wonder that these cars are becoming so popular in Europe. The same phenomenon is also happening in India with Tata cars, and it will only be a matter of time before these cars make it to the United States as well. The basic purpose of a car is for transportation, and nobody does it better than Aixam.

Although the technical jargon may be confusing and the half-car model quite a surprise to you at first glance, have no fear because these cars are the future of the automobile industry. The days of the bloated oversized vehicle are behind us as people are looking to save money on cars and save money at the pump in the process. There is no need to spend thirty to one hundred thousand dollars on a car that will rust and fall apart just as quickly as a vehicle at a of that price. So that is why I think that Aixam cars are some of the best in the industry and why this very young car company will start to make big waves among its peers.
