2009 Lumeneo Smera

Electric Motors

The use of electric motors with a group of batteries is the most earth friendly technology. Of course, there is no pollution, no C02 gas, no smoke, no noise.

Each motor weighs less 30Kg and is made up to 98 % of pure metals, aluminium, copper and iron. Its recycling is simple.

An electrical car also avoids all the pollution created by a thermal engine car: oils, catalytic exhausts, heavy metals.


Ecological, the electrical solution is also economic. The Lumeneo motors were developed to meet precisely the needs of SMERA and to optimize the weight/power ratio. You just need 7kw for driving 100 kilometers.

Each braking action is transformed into energy by the alternator and goes up in the batteries, increasing the autonomy of Smera.


The brushless motors offer the advantage to have no friction parts that makes it possible to have no maintenance and an excellent reliability.  Our electric motors are designed for a 200 000 km lifetime.  Only one moving piece: the inside rotor on its ball bearings.

Controlled tilting

The heart of SMERA is a central electronic system. It manages the whole information of the vehicle, starting from the signals provided by an integrated inertial system.

According to the dynamic parameters of the car, the turning curves, the selected driving mode and the road quality, it determines the optimal tilting angle.

It is a servo-motor with D.C. current controlled by the calculator which fulfils this function automatically by moving the cabin and the 4 wheels.  The driver does not have to worry about the balance of the vehicle, without any need of training. SMERA offers an easy and intuitive handling, an amazing driving sensation.

Exterior Design

Sharp lines, controlled tilting, slim silhouette, all details create the fluidity of Smera.  With its 2m40 of length and 80cm broad, Smera is in the right dimensions to cruise the city, well protected.
The side shoulder brings a strong visual signature. Each surface of the body is at the same time beautiful and functional.

Interior Design

Smera is a luxury cocoon, with its fine leather, broad doors, rear seat, its practical trunk for daily carrying.  A central LCD displays all information, commands are easy, the cockpit offers a panoramic look around the city.
